have you ever held your breath
while staring into an aquarium?
pretending to be one of them
floating perpendicular
afraid of bubbles
licking at your gills
slicing through kelp and salt
with a dull knife point
except I could never
hold my breath for long
so then the little ones would eat me
bit by bit
until I was just another smear
in the blue glass
