99 Loop is delighted to show “Head First” by Geena Wilkinson.

The artist writes:

“Below sea level, Everything is quiet And the body is loud. Telling me only to keep going up, Nothing above ground does that.

Head first, it’s how you come up for air. Always toward, without thinking.

Duck dive, head first, Practicing deep breaths and counting the quiet. But water gets heavier the longer you hold it.

Head swimming becomes night swimming, Through the black, toward the incandescent glow. Instincts of fly kick in. Heavy limbs become light; heavy thoughts take flight.

‘Let that water go, You were drowning’

-U., Chisala. 2018

Did you know that you can run

without running away?”
