Anesthesia

Anesthesia
a cold spray for numbness
and a needle into your forearm
you’re sinking
slowly sinking
salt spray on your cold face
floating on the edge of consciousness
bobbing with the tides
you’re helpless
gently drifting downward
downward, downward
finally submerged beneath the ocean surface
below the waves
in the darkness and quiet
