The irreducible fraction

One half of me tied to the pier, bobbing on the deep cobalt lake
Wading through the reeds where you can’t find a foothold
In the marshy places, half out of the water, beached like a young fox
One half decomposing on the green grass, ribs puncturing slick, grey fur
One half of me in the green, green grass by the blue, blue lake

The other half of me
Half asleep in the snow
Stuck on this mountain ledge
Keeping half an eye over the edge
