Think of That, My Pet

Dipping toes into a pool
can cool you into meditation –
even elevate you to sweet
states of contemplation

of the genesis of life –
of toes themselves, and heels
and ankles, calves and thighs –
eliciting your sighs as you

begin to realize that water
is the mother of us all, the liquid
in and from which we’ve evolved
to master breath – while also

symbolizing the oblivion
of death. Think of that,
my pet, when next
your feet get wet.
