the Upside Down

byNeonurotic©

Open eyes to an artificial blue,
though the water stings, the view is clear.
Clear down to the bottom
where the key winks and is not easily retrieved.

With half a breath, I fumble with the fetters.
Only one is unlocked but it is enough to be free.
Water filled ears pop to
her and him speaking in a vacuum,
surface breaks to their delight.

I slip from the pool with chains a-jangle,
jingling, leaving footprints behind on
the smooth tile to sizzle in the sun.

Chlorine is overridden by the drunk
and I drink. Suck her lemon laced kiss
while his is tequila with salt on the rim
of his ear where I exhale, "your turn".
And I don't mean the handcuff trick.


- a nod to Houdini from the 5 Senses Poem Challenge.
