I've tied myself to the blood-carved boat
and dive into the dark
to get my Pearl.
The bubbles they engulf me,
closing up behind me the earthly world.
I sink in Blue
and melt into Black.
I'm brave and happy,
and I've forgotten the scent of
freshly rained-on pines
and crackling wood.
Gravity and bipedalism foregone,
this multidimensional space I find myself in
does not overwhelm me. I'm free.
The sea is now my home,
and I will swim in it
until my lungs burst
and my heart gets broken.
Twinkling plankton laugh at me,
I'm nobler than all of you,
-a woman made of brains and heart,
you wouldn't know.
And oh you fish!
you form your endless circles
in the millions -
you think you can escape the squawking seagull's strike?
look beyond your spiral act.
Medusas and three-hearted monsters,
you cannot reach my solid core.
My heart is one but it beats strong
and it will shatter you into pieces:
what once was you
will be a crater
of my soul's explosion.
All of you floating wanderers of darkness
for I am looking for my Pearl.
I've come to take him.
