jellyfish 

sheila sea

spineless jellies

get a bad rap, you know.

they just don’t care for war

or confrontation.

they’ve seen the vastness

of the ocean

and the pitch black

sequin night

below the shifting

shelves.

i want you to know

that i thought my softness

was sinking

and my will

was decomposing

i was a daft

flowing

mass in currents.

now i am from underneath

what you call “heaven”

and I call heaven

from underneath you.

– sheila c.
