The Ocean is Hungry Today (PED 19)

By Scorch

Salt settles on her skin,


gathering in the corners of her eyes


to form a crust on those long lashes.


Coarse grains scour her toes


as she dips one foot in


to the autumn ocean.


She releases a squeal and


a dance,


nose crinkling


at the smell of dead fish


and bloated seaweed


bobbing gently in the current.


The ocean basks in her warmth


and thrills at her laughter,


waves slapping the shore


in time with her pulse.


Witness the ocean fall into


demented, jealous love


as seaweed wraps around


her little ankles


to drag her below.


The ocean is hungry today


And will never let her go
