Escaping Captivity

The experience
opened my ears
like an iron stake
driven violently
through ice.
(Taking the underwater view here.)
Once removed
the resulting pathway for what lies beneath
clamors with the fingers
of water
desperately attempting
to escape captivity
if only to gurgle or flow
up from the depths
to lap across the top
of a surface
it has never known.
