Snapped sandals

Submerged, the weight of water
on her chest.
She enjoys the pawing Rivera Ponente
cool her blushing cheeks
ravished by the lusting sun.

To float
she dances with the blue ribbons
easing her arms through glistening reflections.
She swims in diamonds.

Youthful naivety
the ice caps of danger and inquisition
take the waters over head.
Filling lungs with tales of oil smugglers, cave drifters and Greek cliff flyers
She goes under.

A train ticket to her name
snapped sandals tied with hair bands,
she retreats from the quilt
of mermaids.
Sailing in her sleep with the most sincere smile.
