Shifted Whispers

Poem By Sarah Eve

Whispers shifted
Slipping of dirty tongues
Into clean ears
Swimming through
Soaring down
Silly minds

Climbing the thickness of

Under fingernails
Resting atop eyelashes
Cascading down the spinal cord
Racing through the veins
Driving at the soul.

So, as if upon a whim
I grew a set of fins
