Sinking To Find

In search of my shadow

in the torrent of kings

I wade through the current

of all other things


Alone treading water

my essence bemired   

This river a dungeon

of banished desire


I reach out to grab it

it motions away

To outline my image

while swirling at bay


And not till I’m sinking

does it buoy my form

To chase was my folly

—now rescued reborn
