On the Forty-Third Night

You come back for me oh
bioluminescent
you swallow me
drowning lungs fighting
blind nails drawing
unreadable blood
you once told me
your shufa symbols
can create miracles
can they

  1. “blind nails drawing / unreadable blood” really got to me, Rose! I don’t know how you keep digging deep and writing each day, but thank you.

    Shufa symbols appear
    on the ocean’s surface
    their power
    watered down.
