The water lies flat out across the world liquid lips lapping against the shallow breath of the sky. Clouds hustle in bunching up at the door. Someone closes it from the outside. You hear the latch go click as the lockset drives the bolt home. I put the pillow behind my head and take it away again. My body is confused about whether it wants to sleep or not. This will get sorted out as I float out on the shallow sea watching for the drop off that never comes. Between my toes I watch clouds stumble over one another.
