I Dreamt of a Lake

if virginia were a lake
its depth would be waist deep
brown opaque waters
rolling waves and easy tides
it would be easy to get lost
to wander to swim out too far
there the lake or ocean or body
of water virginia would toss
and vomit up itself, reaching for
your head with menacing swells,
only to whimper and crest you gently
back to shore, back to maryland,
my maryland, back to ivory towers,
back to balmy southern air.
