ordinary baptism

keeps happening:

Walle capsized in the shallows

he has lost his tail

and I must wade in

fish it out

and reattach

each time I descend

into the pool

in my ordinary clothing

I feel the force of water

baptism

the descent into the deep

and the washing away of all my sins

in the ordinary actions

of righting Polaris
