you punctured my husk
and like popcorn / I burst
accordion groans / sequestered sighs
can you uninstall my heart
from your chest?
….5 minutes to takeoff….
drifting / sifting
being alone is not hard
it’s the memories that sink
in this saltwater

I so enjoyed your saltwater dream, Tricia, especially the shape and layout of it, the sounds in the ‘accordion groans / sequestered sighs’, and the way the memories sink to the bottom of the poem.
Thanks! I had fun polishing up this older poem for #TopTweetTuesday and appreciate you hosting! 💝
Love this one!
Fantastic title, like the ebb and flow.
