no one is listening - Nina Fiona

i sat by a river or an ocean or a lake and i

whispered to the eels around my ankles

words of longing that could just as easily have been words

of sorrow i pressed

my feet into the moss or rocks or sand and i closed

my eyes

it made no difference eyes

opened

or closed

i saw

the same.
