flow (surrender)


there is that current you go willingly with
or it takes you anyway in riffs and rips
better to slide into it than fight,
drowning in crocodile rolls

hard to teach that flow
but when we learn it
easier to skim,
to float that surface pull.
it  only takes you under
if you fight

the dead surrender
much more easily
than the live

but we can learn it
