Photo Challenge #60, Still, May 12, 2015 “Expulsion”

Catching the Rain by Vampire Zombie

Vampire Zombie

The echo of your currents

Heart like a sieve, finely-spaced

Scalpel-edged, chewing the husk

Of your tentative intimations.

I line up seashells on the seafloor,

Mosaics of evicted mollusks

Shattered, opalescent shingles,

A room with proliferating margins.

White as the neck of a clam,

An origami fetus suckling

The briny nectar of her own

Mandatory expulsions.
