back from the front

a year, maybe 2? glub glub underwater. under war water. I swim through green sea. mermaid tentacles of war kelp grabbing at me. my arms. my legs.

I entered one woman. swam and swam. my man unable to believe. I’d surface. inhale him. breath air into him. us. our life. again.

now another woman. my arms, legs, body tested, strained. I reach land.
