We swam toward the benthos of a Great Lake and lost ourselves for days. With the current climate of a failing nation, being submerged underwater suddenly felt better than struggling to breathe on land.

“Should we head back?” I think this as I swim near coral & kelp.

“No.”

Author’s Note: This piece is a response to a Twitter prompt for #vss365. The word: benthos.
