Vortex


 


Sink or swim, baby girl,


and you better figure it out


quick—that whirlpool


 


pulls you closer and closer now


 


and you know the water’s too deep


for you to touch the muddy bottom.


 


No one’s going to take care of you


anymore. You’re too big


for that. Get used to it.


 


Soon, the fatigue will give birth


to burning in your body


            your thrashing arms and legs


            and tightened stomach


and eventually


subside again to exhaustion.
