the edge of the world

  mimi water poem Collage

twice i kissed my life away
twice saw ghosts
at the edge of the world
where half-woman half-fish
i drowned my million nights alone
in deep sea sounds
and reckless waters
that opened wide and forever
slipping into me
wave after wave after wave
an infinity of salt
was it your voice
brought me back
like a net
laying me bare upon the shore
burnished by the sun
was it your voice that brought me home
