Diversion becomes a way of life

Oh I don’t know
A place away from pockets of isolation
Seems like a good way to go
The water knows how to sit
Obeys commands like “fetch”
and “look reflect-y”

Fingers touch that rippling world
Wondering why nature’s cracks just appear
Without reason or
the wait for approval

Still beautiful though
Murky and teeming with life
Oh look, my cellphone is ringing

A text alert saying
My hair isn’t slicked back
But they’ll be here any minute
With microphones
And questions skirting around a bubble
