The haunting of a broken tap: drip, drop

The thirst after the sun: drink, gulp

She never said a lot, gargling girl

Sliding in and out of my body

Helping me breathe, walk, talk

That was why I swam

It was water

Brought me alive floating out to No Man’s

Diving down to skim the sand

Wanted it, always had it, but could never catch it.

Résumé / Michael Kwack


Love is, like art,

dull without passion.


Marriage is, like enterprise,

vain without fortune.


Home is, like a chair,

awkward without comfort.


Life is, like sleep,

hollow without a dream.


Death* is, like a letter,

absurd without a story.


  *Death means suicide.
