Volume scares me. I remember how a mug plunging into a bucket full of water would make me restless during childhood. I don't call it a phobia, just to avoid being labelled. But even the thought of gallons of water wobbling as a whole in oceans is enough to send chills to my spine. Snorkeling is an adventure that I don't want in my life. I didn't want to see life in the swift current of river.

death day
a dip in the river
that took him away
