No Diving

When I sat there
There in the bungalow
I sat there under the skylight
So that I could (finally)
Talk to God
I could sit with God
I could swim with God
I swam with God
I closed my eyes and put on my trunks
And went upstairs to the big pool (in my head)
And we swam in circles
Lazy laps
Over and over
Around and around
A synchronized dance with God
A dance that we ended in an embrace
I hugged God
And God hugged me back
Then he dunked my head in the water
I drowned for God
At least I thought it was God
