saltwater healing

Words by Lucia Lane

Content Warning: contains mentions of religious trauma


let me take your rosary apart,
an offering.
return the pearls to the ocean
slowly dissolving,
do you promise not to sin?
salt circle surrounding the earth,
when she cries
tears turn to holy water,
a baptism in trauma.
use your body as parchment,
rewriting the ending,
we wait for ink to dry
