Are you there? Please,

clutch those memories of

half-forgotten dreams

of waves that cradle

sparkled sand.

Quick, listen closely and you’ll hear

the murmur

shared in the fog’s tendrils.

Shatter a vase amongst

the ensemble of rocks,

they’ll be witnesses

to the waltz

swirling like vines

wisping up your body.

Now, blur those pinched

stems before a

fanciful observer

breaks the time, their brushstrokes digging into

that carved mosaic in your skin.

Don’t fall behind—

sway with the seashells before

you’re caught in the

violent promenade.
