Like a child in a bath
pulls a boat across the sea,
he lost himself in the moments of the tub.
Ceramic plug pulled sips the boat into
a gentle spiral. Pulling his toes,
he feels like he could go down with the ship.
Mother comes in with towel and lightens the mood,
but he lost his boat in a nasty hurricane.
Bath time is swift and dangerous.
The captain waited, willing to go down, too.
Boy was drowning, noticing the rescuer above him.
Without knowing it, he was slowly losing.
He could have gone down that day.
