Water bubbling in a beaker,
boilingly agitated. Clear fluid strength
in fragile transparent shell.
Vivacious cobalt fire, vividly churning,
Turbulently constrained by
savage molten heat.
Water deep delving in a murky well,
slime drenched, slippery and stifling,
dragging me under, drowning in mind.
A thick green-brown rainbow,
infinitely cold, bleakly constrained
by a whirlpool of impermanence.
