You swam with your brother to the far bank where one can reach bottom at low tide...

He is lying quite still...
Get the water out of him!

The sea turned rough and cold. He clung to you, but lost his grip.
The moment you thought him gone burns behind your eyelids.

You fought the sea, Death at your shoulder; whose touches have bruised your skin in yellow and indigo.

Get him warm!
When he opens his eyes you cry.

It dawns on you how fragile it is, your shared private world.
The realization leaves another bruise, deeper than skin.
