Heart’s Hollow

the world opens to take me in

with a delirious roll of thunder

as gulls cry saline tears,

to match the non-emotive hum

of the salted falls’ slow descent

into the belly

of the roiling southern seas.

stars brim 

like phosphorescence foam

surging below the bridge 

of galactic gyroscopes.

and i come 

empty-handed to you,

with a meek disrobing 

of heart’s hollow –

you tenderly bend 

to fill.
