Today's poem is by Gary L. McDowell
The body of water that cries
in search, unable to breathe.
Broken, can you ask for more?
Water crying, water
for the mouth. Itís why
we have throats. If I am
without the body my voice
will die and shake off stars
or fall one half of a year.
I am what I fear to be. I am a loop.
