…the bottom

When your bottom is not deep, 

it is easy to see over the edge 

where people gather in joyful celebration. 

 

When your bottom is not deep, 

it is easy to see the horizon 

where the sun glistens on a cool and inviting river of wine.

 

When your bottom is not deep, 

it is easy to hear the voices in the breeze 

telling you that you don’t have a problem.

 

When your bottom is not deep it is easy to sit on the side of the pool, 

dangling your feet in the water and, ignoring truth, 

jump into the once shallow waters.

 

When your bottom is not deep,

you may one day discover 

it has disappeared.
