Unnecessary

Please excuse me from my duties
so I can slip under this log
and rest, my hair fanning out
around my blameless face,
no bubbles from my nose —
even breathing made, for now,

unnecessary.

I wish to be unnecessary.
I wish to be unnoticed.

Just for a while,
just for a minute,
until the sea grass
releases my ankles
and the tide comes in.
