A light is stuffed into your mouth
and a hand firmly placed upon the same
to keep it shut.
You struggle and twist,
let out muffled cries,
but to no avail,
their grip is strong.
You feel
how the light begins
to creep down your throat,
it feels cold
when it drips
down your gullet and your lungs
like pale honey
tasting of that space between
clear nights and empty sunlight
into washed out forget-me-nots
streaked with the dirty gold
you find on the ground of riverbeds.
I wonder,
can you drown,
actually drown,
when there is only light
in your lungs,
which blocks out the air in there
until none is left?
What does that make you?
Can you tell?
