Swimming From Cuba

Immersed in the ocean
stinging jellyfish, sharks,

everything is a predator
holding its ground,

until a bipedal African great ape
swims by making furrows in the sea.

Boat lights bob in the distance,
the white menace circles.

A little bubble that says I’m ok
when all of nature begs to differ.
