Poetry Friday: Sea Holly by Elizabeth-Jane Burnett and Tony Lopez

she swam
only at night
on the spring tides

in the silk light of water
slipping her over
the mud flats

when they studied why she did it
drifted far beyond her limits
though it made her vulnerable to prey

several theories came
but none swam
at night in a spring tide
in the silk light unsure
of itself
becoming only what is left
after breaking

- selected lines from Sea Holly by Elizabeth-Jane Burnett and Tony Lopez
