Sea of Knives

there are those
who believe
swimming
in a sea
of knives
will do
no further harm,
but rather

 

fill

 

spaces between
a house
divided
against itself
along
creases
almost infinite.

 

yet shark
infested
waters live only
to devour every
remaining morsel.

 

so look beyond
rubicon
of shoreline
and see
crimson tide
in view
on horizon now,
a tomorrow
worth
avoiding pleads
for legs
to wade in
there's no clever way
of navigating
a sea of knives.
