This world on the surface

where no one notices you sinking.

only when you flail your arms drowning
do they come to you.

when you’re jumping out of the water
they’ll all watch in awe.

but when you drown
only a few will give you a hand,

and as you sink
only some will hold on,

and at the bottom
it’s only you.

just you and the fishes.
