Wet Toes

Sometimes I go to dark places and I just look in the water.

I just look, I don't jump in.

Sometimes I dip my toes in, but wet toes don't matter.

Maybe that's why we want to jump in,

because jumping in might make it matter

because before jumping in it doesn't.

Before jumping in, it's not even real.

But jumping in might make it real.

Falling in might make me heard and not excused

Diving in headfirst might make me seen and not skipped over

because no one cares about wet toes.

No one even sees them.
