Deep End


We're waiting
in the deep end
of the pool
for our guests,
who are changing inside
at this very moment,
preparing for the plunge,
while we're still
treading water,
limbs barely moving,
our faces
just breaking the surface.
They'll enter
at our invitation,
diving headlong
into another world,
their dreams eager
to take them,
where they'll seek
the eternal bliss
they've been told 
is always available
here.
