To Matt

your image recedes,

like a silhouette beneath dark waters

the presence known by the

points of light left in its wake,

the way phosphorescent algae bursts

to life as you swim. You cut

through darkness with brilliance that

hovers and shimmers long after you have glided beyond.

Yet when I close my eyes

you are no longer a shadow receding.

I see you breaking

the surface

reaching out

to me.
