ophelia re-possessed

our bodies are mirrors.
listlessly, we taste the bottom of the lake
(the very bottom, where it hurts the most)
tongues entwined in dark, wet sand.

the salt of your lips; a dim fever.
a reflection of your scales
balanced, arching
within your skin

we wash our sin

with the drowning lily pads, petals
heaving
crying

the wounded siren
tastes the gash of the sea
(the gash inside of me)
