Sevenling (Septem Maria)

..
We are seven sacred spills
steeped in moonshine,
sorrow, salt.

You swim,
you sail,
you soil our skin.

We beg your mercy, wait for sirens.

A Siren Siphons Her Song

(a Triolet)

 

.

He wished farewell at salty shore,
but she’s still waiting for the wave.
All sound lost over Neptune’s roar,
he wished farewell at salty shore.
His hands are gestures, nothing more;
her heart’s an ocean wanting saved.
He wished farewell at salty shore,
but she’s still, waiting for the wave.

My Dearest Poseidon,

..

O, Shaker of the Earth, have you
stolen my scribblings? I have spilled

the secrets of my heart into these
tumbled waters; is there a reason

they have not yet reached my love?
Such things cannot stay bottled,

you know. That eraser dust moon
will pull them to shore one morn,

shattered so by your cantankerous
storms. And if these inky wonderings

bleed to sea, someday my love will
scoop these broken pieces of me, run

a quiet thumb over wave-smoothed
glass, catch a glint of sun, and see.

 

 

.
PAD, day 25.

the cartography of days


.
we weigh ourselves in sighs, the siege
of silence. see the significance of snail:

she slugs along slow, leaves a small
and disappearing trail,
………………………………..craves no sky.
