dark waters

look at me twirl
spin joy in the rain
up to knees in the drain
dancing as the waters swirl

this little satyr’s crazed joy
as lightning breaks black sky
to thunder’s deep cry
not girl or boy

child unbridled in delight
seeks the floods of stormy night
careful not to slip away
where dark waters go to play
where the others, quiet lay
