You swam in dark waters

at the back of the classroom

silent, sulky, seething

 

I cast my line

you didn’t take the bait

slippery, slick, sly

 

You let the current pull you

into dangerous waters

surging, swirling, suffocating

 

I tossed a life preserver

you slipped further away from shore
