seashells in coral locks

seashells in coral locks

A Poem by kamiya

nested in breastmilk linens
cool as marbled tiles beneath pale flesh
black obsidian shards filling sunset eyes
manila walls chipped-- closing in

heroin speckled stars and pale moon
peek heads out oaked window
as newborn child from womb
Aphrodite's waves crash in distance

pulled by thread of moon
seashells knotted in her coral locks
lulling me with siren songs
to hummus seashore

shards of sand filling my toes
cool hands-on rows of ribs
leaving crescent moons

lied on granite seashore
siren spit waves
sticky pearl foam
moon drops her black dress
blows out her beeswax candles

coral lock goddess
crawled into sunlight Venus shell
sailed with pale moon
seashells on nude ribs

empty red wine glasses
plum lipstick
painted on rim

glinting in the crimson sun's goop
footprints imprinted in hot sand
back to breastmilk linens
