Wet Shells

Stones on a Rocky Ocean Beach

moist like water on the petals
moist like dews of the rocks
an ocean embryo
an ocean entire

these glances in my collarbones
these glances in these chasms of light
call my eyes
sewing in colours
and eyelashes
and so many droplets of emotions

we are of the sea
and of earth
mammalian-amphibian —
covered in eggs and foam and milk
covered in stones and pearls

beautiful vast oceans
using a small fountain pen
to scribble waves
