Releasing a false body
my shadow emerges and

I am all
stun,

while she is all
a body

a dark
slipped off

She is dissolute,
the darkest part of

my shadowed veins,
my fear & flood

Without her I am only
half my heart

she is my
fevered shiver

Wave by wave
she dissipates

into a fall
I am fathom

from my body
I am beside myself

startle and
undone,

desire
of ink in water—

slip
but hovering.

as dire as
me—

my brine-black blood—
& faster.

flesh, apart—
half beat—

mirror & my heat
burning cold.

by fin by tentacle
dissolves

to the deep seafloor.
             away.
