One, plus Nine

Most days, I think it’s doable.
To dip my feet into the water
without feeling the need
to just do it already
and jump in head first.

But some days,
I keep inching my legs
deeper and deeper into the water,
just to feel something —
to feel surrounded —
and I can barely keep my grip
on the edge of the dock.

It’s the Some Days
that make me feel
like it really is possible to drown
in only a tablespoon of water —
that I should just walk away
before the water pulls me in
and chokes me.

But it’s also on the Some Days
that I’m able to convince myself
that I can control the elements —
and that if I can’t,
at least I’m a fantastic swimmer.
