Making It Even

If I can swim across the pool
same as throwing back a shot, and still

feel nothing,

why did you ask

if the only place I cry
is underwater?

Last Summer

On the Ferris wheel, last summer,
I gripped my son’s blue shirt
as we spun sickly
in the vacant air,
then down, again,
to where the hot earth tilted.
