My darling dove

There are no safe spaces here
This is a world of refusal to settle at
agreeing to disagree

Personally,
death is as much a part of living
as life itself

The immaculate inhale
the spluttering exhale
The stumbling from this starting block
to the unimaginably long fall to the water
where the dive is less streamline and more
surface areas colliding
Skin left with bold, scarlet kisses
no questions asked
eyes open, lungs brimming with water

This is the divine goodnight
