The Saltier Perspective of the World


Her empire
is a sea,

see?

We
let her swim
the outlands, free,
through the dark
ages of our friendly
coasts.

She boasts of having
known Lombard, having
been ravaged by Neptune
himself, given distinguished
naval supremacy by jet
-sam, flotsam notwithstanding.

(She’s got no legs to stand on,
see?)

But with great glee, she’ll flip
you a fin, dig in
extemporaneously.

Prompted by an awesome word list from my Shawna.

    So much love for this. 🙂

    I adore this section:
    “through the dark
