Cardio

It felt like mourning
most of all weighted
heart
sinking like a rock 
or a body
to the bottom of
her chest
lake
legs bound no
longer kicking
save yourselves
i’m just going to rest
a spell in this
green water blanket
cold wrapping the
end of life is cold
like the beginning you
emerge into
the open air
remember the warmest
place you have ever
known you cry
for comfort 
cold
kicking mad
