The Jellyfish

(inspired by a visit to an Aquarium with my son)

Weightless as a word
you drift
alone.  A hollow

eye gaping
at empty
clouds.  A floating

clear saint
heart
caged by

serpent strands
dragged
across the barren

ocean.  Your empty
bladder-body
eradiated

by solar waves.
Spared
by no element.

  1. well done. if i remember correctly as to the jellyfish it has no backbone. so, i’m wondering if it alludes to that at all.

  2. what a bleak, sad existence.
