Rescued, Didn’t Sink

So close to sinking

River’s high-rise, current fast

Pulse tastes coppery

~

Despair pounds dully

Dog-paddling near rocky bank

So close to sinking

~

Fear’s pulse, copper’d day

Sweet Death, taste tempts—white-feathered

Flash—I didn’t sink

Tribulating Life

~ Dedicated to…well, you know who you are ~

~~~

Restless bed of nails…

Prancing ‘pon hot coals by day…

Life does tribulate—

Snuffing soul past dimmest hope

Or lighting wick, Endurance
