soothe

soothe
for Keikei (璣璣) whose name is of the pearl

Pearl fisher
pearl-fisher

it’s said,
to smooth
an awkward
grain of sand
within, the
oyster
clouds it
over in
cream
of pearl

so you
the pearl
by name
were the
the soothing
of your
parents’
tie, their
sweetest
knot made
round

you
the pearl
by name
the sun
in cloud
describes
as well
as a moon
in night’s
closed
flesh

they say
the sea
is lovely
for its
moods,
hints
of every
churn
and
resting
of the heart
are read
upon it,

in moon
the laid
harp of
light on
calm,
scooped
into palm,
the moon
in sea
a pearl
