“first things first. goodbye, my love,”
she whispered before jumping backwards
no time for her lover to adjust her crown
before being swallowed by the waves

her only flaw was that she was flawless
so she was washed up on the shore
untouched by the seaweed and animals
carried to safety on Poseidon’s hands

sometimes, when looking up at the stars
she sweeps her white skirt across the sky
scattering the jewels of light within
I catch one every once in a while

do you think she’d have liked this sunset?
maybe that’s just her blushing
on the way to her honeymoon
wedded to the earth
