In the Deep



In the deep
bags under eyes
Pillows missing sleep.

She saw Aaron Rodgers out the corner of her eye,
so she went deep.

1 foot
2 foot
3 foot
4
Water past ankles, determined to cover more…

5 foot
6 foot
7 foot
8
She’s thinking, “I’m cold, how dare he make me wait”

She was left out there by a thoughtful man
loved his comics and
assumed she’d be saved by aqua man.
