All The World, In Aquamarine

Related image

All the world I saw,
is all the world I see
from the purple mountains
to the tiny shimmer of the sea
in deep blue aquamarine.

Marine life swims beneath me,
schools of dolphins
dipping their fins
to the tip of sea
for the sea is the world,
the only world they will see
from their small black beads
of eyes in aquamarine.

the color between
green earth
and blue sea,
the combination
of the world I see.

People floating in
swimming pools
bleached with white
stench of chlorine
they believe this is
the world they see.

I breathe in air,
breathe out choking
on water.
I see a world in aquamarine.

An endless sea,
a sea to believe
in boundless faith
and dolphins to carry
my body into the starry
reflections of the
black sky.

Aquamarine is my alibi.
