The Ultimate

7 July 2021

By Philip Kuepper

it is about becoming
water. That is what
drives one who rows.

it is about
letting go the oars,
letting go the shell.

it is the desire
to flow back
into the elemental.

We were water.
The water pulls on us,
pulls on the water in us
to return.

we do
Rowing is a turn in that direction.
