Salt, Tears, and Waves

Silent and alone, I sit

on this dark beach, deep-thinking.

Remembering a sinking

feeling of salt-wounds. Slits,


like gills, cuts, arterial

leaking, fishes called, feeding

on what had seeped. Still bleeding.

Listen! It brought me… the Call.


She’s there. Within the tide, She

calls to me, “Love, come inside,

and hear the silence. I, bride,

consummate and lay with me.”


I will join Her, but not yet.

It’s not time to go to those

damp linens for sodden bones,

where Salt, Tears, and Waves just met.


You, Sea Goddess, Siren-Thing,

Whisperer of the Waves, call

my name, so that through it all,

I will hear it as you Sing.
