Plump Plumb


when curls unfold

limber fingers embrace salty hair

bound by the sea

through the earth

above the air

heaving hearts thrust blood out and around

as lips

once loose with language

slowly suck

breathes large and small

to fill plump plumb colored lungs

which swell

which fall

“Plump Plumb” by Meaghan Merrifield
