Night Swimming

Diffusing Layers

part of: Postcards to the World

by Celeste Roth

Take apart common sense
By pieces
Interleaved assumptions
Based on experience
Leading to a conclusion
I keep wanting to look underneath
The surface of that ocean
The layers of water that
Support the visible surface.
Dissolve the assumptions
Realize that my experience is only one
Create a different world
For me to live in
