Conch

“come to the sea”
she whispers in my ear
i feel saltwater rush into my head
breaking
against the shores of my brain
my cracked lips know the waves’ familiar sting
the barnacle bitten shell digs
into the side of my head
i hear her
i hear her

i hear her
i hear her

FAVORITE POETRY FORM Poetry in protest is very attractive to me. I love the concept of beautiful activism.
WRITING LIKE WATER Good ideas come rising up like a gushing wave before I crash on the beach, but pull back to rise again, forgetting how much the sand hurt in an instant.
FAVORITE LOCAL WATER Puget Sound seen from Golden Gardens.
