Swimming Alone on an Empty Stomach

I’ve been swimming alone
For a long time…
The water
First too cold
Now sublime;
I slide,
I glide
Through the darkness
My wounds smoothed over
Are all on the inside–
When I bump up against you
All buttery sleekness
There’s nothing to hold onto,
No pain,
No weakness.
Two circling seekers
Float on unmolested,
Swallowed by the vastness,
No point of connection.
Bubbles of potential
More or less indifferent,
While stars shine beyond
This sea of solipsis.

[from Depth Perception]
