Survival


I love how beautiful she is
while she survives 
wearing her turns and u-turns on her skin;
exposed  for    all     to     see
  rippling in wavy lines 
  swirling with translucent strides. 
They drip.   from her arms.  
They dangle.     in the sun. 
They swim.    like pearls. 
and when she is hungry 
she swallows them whole 
and is full.
