by Jane Edwards aged 17

lulling, rocking, sultry night
seek my hand in cold waters
brush your air through my fingertips
bitten pink by teeth glinting milky
as the moon
pregnant she skims the translucent sea
rounded head lolling to sigh
for her yellow sun’s birth
marked by blunt clock’s cry
yellow and pink scribble dark sky
fingers that know not what they will find
pluck my body and leave melting stars behind
dreams tucked between duvets
