My Hair Recalls the Sea
by Amy Zoellers
My hair recalls the sea, you say—
unaware of my command
over its deadliest beings,
those who secret in the bend of horizon
and cleave to the deepest caverns.
I release my reverberant, aberrant song-storm,
my shrilling squall
and they uncoil, stretch into waking.
One breath and they are force,
swarming nightmare and despair
over those who insult me—
and to all who have erred
into the neighborhood.
