Cliff Girl

House of Heart

In my infinite smallness

looking out across the ocean

my arms are albino snakes

basking in the sun and the

hot earth burns the soles of

my bare feet.

A treasure of pearls are strewn

stardust across the sand and

this garland around my wrist is

tied to nothing but my hand.

I am the universe lending life

to silent rock as the sun streams

down my throat where there is no voice.

A child’s laughter rings through honeyed

coves where lost lovers wait for the tide

to tumble them into the golden light.

Beneath my feet, a carpet of Jacaranda

and my empty hands carry no burden but love.
