I walk into the ocean      hog billowed waves –
determined to submerge my porcine limbs
surrender bulk to weightlessness
resign earth and sky and in aqua-shadows
on shifting sand      my mind will rise
to celebrate my innate boar-dom
my honking snout      my deep piggy eyes
I'll swim far from half-wit humans
I'll save my leathery hide      refuse to bristle
brushes to sweep floors or street-kerbs
I will fly      descend on deep currents
to Atlantis      sacrifice my body
feed lost angels      join pearls with swine
such salted love      such sweet redemption
