Dream Shores

By Ana Penavić

The whale swallowed us whole
after he looked at us
with one big round eye (bulbous)
(soft) (blue)
mouth opened wide

The waves crashed against him
creating a maelstrom outside our walls
but within was the tender
rocking of ourselves

Do we build a life here in this whale?
Amongst the sea and the krill
where I love you, you love me

Awoken from the dream
the Sun streams into my room
Awakened from our dream
my moon, I look ahead
