Enter Water Swimmer

Mary Morris

These poems travel physically and emotionally, addressing the human condition through evocative language. “Enter Water, Swimmer” and you will be steeped in various manifestations of this world and beyond, daring to take on diverse realms of women, belief, culture, and ethics.

Day One

You slipped through me,
not by me.
How could I have known
I would fall through these waters
into the country of us?
