“Aurora” by Chelsea Bayouth

BY CHELSEA BAYOUTH

 

From the bank opposite the drowning beast
She looks on blankly
Bubbles froth and fluvver at its wrinkled snarl
futilely fighting for its life

She pats the head of her infant
held loosely to her chest

How to mourn a thing so
that used to be a part of you
but has no home
and no longer serves a purpose?
