“It’s as predictable as the tide and the moon. It ebbs and flows. Death comes and it goes.”
Shea Ernshaw, The Wicked Deep

Jalina Mhyana
“We could scan each car for terrorists

and lovers she could lean into

my camouflage her head resting on woven trees.

When they come for her body she could run deep
into my uniform

into the forest of me
where they could never find her.”
Jalina Mhyana, The Wishing Bones
