The channel or channel swimmer
You stand on the edge
waves lapping at your ready feet.
In your gut emotions wage war
provoked by whispers of darkness, sharks,
and endless miles of open water.
Yet, out there is the siren call of land.
Just offshore, bobbing
in a liquid trail of moonlight
the support boat waits to engage in the chase.
You stretch, assessing both inner
and outer strength, then
tighten the strap of your goggles.
Adrenaline surging with the rising waves
you leave the shore.
