immerse…

I felt myself dip —

too deep, almost- into the cold,

cold stream, my breath caught

on the branches

above, dressed in pearly

white fur and sap

I felt myself plunge —

immerse my whole body, almost –  into

the frigid, frigid air, my bones

now icicles, my flesh frozen- molts

like a python, shimmering

like diamonds caught

in moonlight, I emerge —
