Where She Lies
jdnazario

Dandelion burned – back to the ocean’s
 1
great apron. Overwhelmed she bowed in
 2
plumes bottom-wards. Smoke and sand consumed
 3
her form. Silver spores cast tribute a-
 4
cross the roaring boards 'til silence wrapped
 5
her. An appetising heap. The weeds
 6
raged. Lone spine among the wanting. Founder –
 7
encroached by leggy creatures. Bare-boned
 8
vassal. Plucked in timely currents. Wide-
 9
barred cage bode feathered beaks to reign
 10
pommels on the bed-rise. Artifacts.
 11
Absolute black. A frozen stroke of
 12
charged hands. A derelict bulb. Run-out course.
 13
Unyielding socket. Salt burial
 14
Mount. The old girl is but wreckage now
 15
insignificant bump in the sea.
