Nimrat Chahal, Poetry 2021 Magazine

A Brief Moment

and the slippers splashed
the mud water
and tadpoles flew about
and in that brief moment where
my foot is suctioned
to the bottom of the pool
in that moment
a thousand lives are born
and the microscopic dreams
are dead
because in the bubble before
there is only nurturing
and in the bubble after
only expectations
