mother of pearl

let me drift on the currents of the sea

sinking easefully

as the cool waters wrap me up

and pour me into the shell of an oyster

to be cradled in the jagged layers of calcium

i am undone in the stillness

turned inside out

scrubbed raw,

skin crawling,

shuddering in sheer discomfort until i become iridescent

and Smoothed
