abalone


24 x 24


hard shell,
bright lines,
iridescent glimmers of what can be
needing
the hurt to hurt less.

evergreen saturation
pink new surface
jewelbox coated self
bake me in the sun
& watch me fade into warmth.

traces,
sediment at my feet,
smooth steps,
slow tread,

lacquered opalescence
I learned to breathe deep.
that is
how the resilient ones
sleep.
