    Description:
       Ok, unlike part one, this is not an acrostic, but it follows the idea of drowning morecloselythat the first. Whereas the first part was a focusing on a 'first date' scenario, this part covers the break up. And before you ask, yes,it is about secks in the shower.

    dotsThe Art of Drowning Pt. IIdots
    -------------------------------------------


    Breaths quivering
    beneath drenched hair,
    as California Red
    mingles through every
    desiccated cell -
    fruitless flavours still
    grasping your lips
    in hope of one more
    playful sip.

    Fingers frantically
    pulling at mists -
    swiftly diving through
    ectoplasms of saturated
    orga[ni]sms between
    antique white tiles;
    examining every inch
    of bare skin: the teasing
    tickles of immersing trickles.

    Devoid of atmosphere -
    cyclical drums
    overpower light-headed
    winces.
    The mirror clears,
    but the unforgiving
    message still gazes back.
    Behind that curtain is
    so forlorn without you.

      Chris,

    I think you've got something going with this one on the whole. The initial and final stanzas speak with clear authority and portray the "victim" here in all their isolated and helpless clawings at the inevitable. Be it actual drowning that brings us out of our common story, or the little drownings we do every day to hold that last one off a bit longer.

    Where you kind of lose me is in the middle stanza. It gets a little too ethereal here, a touch too flowered for its subject. Regarding: "orga[ni]sms", I see the delima but I think you need to make a choise or find a way to jukstapose the two. The ear is indifferent to sight gags.

    Good and solid otherwise.

    Talk to you soon,

    Jason
