Audrey (uminoyami)

Your Ursula stares despondent by the jars

filled with ocean creatures past I imagine

them pulsating fast as lovers’ hearts

in their preserving liquid. Slowing with

the chemicals a final fidget before dark.

 

Audrey, how do you capture?

Hair fluid as water, those eyes that sulk

somewhere off canvas, ears that have

heard the disappointment

that could have been my own.
