Jarred Thompson - Semi Permeability

I was awake while you were drowning
me: in bed
you: the adjacent  bathroom

I wanted to move but didn’t
I wanted to yell but couldn’t

I listened to the sweet sound of your gurgling
mixing water with flesh
over and over again

It reminded me of fish in a tank
a baby choking on its mother’s milk

The violent choking
The violent choking

I was awake while you were drowning
