Noah was the last to go.
he was discovered
face down: hands still clenched
from the struggle.

then Paul
then John
then Mary
down the hallway

into the tub

one at a time
each head held

until bubbles
turned to silence…
no frantic prayers answered

no angel made mommy stop.

nothing but struggle and terror,

as God watched.
