she speaks in monochrome
stringing together words in every shade of blue
so blue
she choked on the sea.
syllables crashed against her teeth
wearing away the enamel
and carving out monuments in honor of all the things
she never meant to say.

tiny birds with oil-slick wings
and salt-stripped throats drowned in her esophagus.

she prays to a god that reeks of whiskey
and stale tobacco;
his eyes are as barren as an arctic tundra
but he loves her
like he loves the lichens growing on his spinal cord.
compared to the vastness of his embrace
her pollution is nothing more
than a prism of color after the rain.

her veins took root when she was still in her mother's womb;
the vague tree branches under her skin remind her of home.

she speaks in monochrome
but the black and blue shades never seem
quite as pretty as when the sirens begin to whisper
sweet nothings—
the toxic spill leaving her susceptible.
and her tiny birds and tree-branch veins
and monuments and lichen-covered gods
brace themselves for the fall.
