Good Water
Joseph Hope

I will drown in my dreams; the stardust, the gold of Mars. 
The unicorn returned with the mammoths. The stainless sky. 
Sweetness; butterfly season; flying flowers. A new world inside 
the old world. I want to swim 
with whales and baby sharks. I want to dwell 
In paradise where carbon doesn’t decay and ice doesn’t melt.
