Breathing underwater presents difficulties. Difficult presence.

Drowning. Not. Drowning.

Present. Difficulties.

 

Blinded no light. Seeing in the dark. Blanketing gloom not my doom.

Not.

My. Doom.

 

Speaking silence. Once were whispers will whisper yet.

One word. Whispered.

One name. Name.

 

What’s the matter? Cat got your tongue?

Why, yes. Thank you for asking.

 

No problem. No. Problem.

 

Hearing static. Problematic not problematic. Not my problem I’m just.

Your problem. Just.

My problem. Our problem.

 

Sharing. Nicely.

 

(Chorus) Sing along. Sing song.

Sing. Song.

Sing.

Song.

 

Choking out.

Crossed wires.

Short circuit.

Mixed messages.

 

(Next verse)

Day. Night. Day.

Alive.

Desynchronized drowning.

Drowning.

Not drowning.

Trying.

 

Breathe.

Who needs words? Who needs voices? Who needs?

Who needs who?

Who needs oxygen?

Who?

Speak.

 

Glub. Glub.

 

Glub.

 

Me not Me. Not Me.

Knot. Me.
