Rising sea

As an homage to the tide, I tear myself apart,

let my skin split into rivulets the same way she

fractures the moon over her body.

I have not the tears to pour onto the sand

the ways she courses relentlessly over the shore,

but I have enough to drown in while

my cries build into her own.
