"Blessed, Complicated Water" or "Sitting at China Beach, Remembering Cape Coast" [#poem]

"Blessed, Complicated Water" or "Sitting at China Beach, Remembering Cape Coast"
(C) Rabbi Menachem Creditor

These waters kiss those waters,
rotting detritus and free children's footsteps comingling in a global mikvah,
purifying each wet person
from the ravages
of sin.
