From my car I felt I was a vessel
of the waters. I longed to be filled,
my belly upturned,
my head pillowed upon the tide:
dead and drowned. And I would reply,
but not without being present,
for I would not be lying still
upon its bosom were I not welcome.
And the car took me to my Sunday relatives.
