Selachimorpha by Ren Martinez

the light of the ocean simmered across the space between them

reflecting murky depths brimming florescent diatoms

this kaleidoscope flares with the color of a microscopic moment

that create a memory mosaic out of colored glass and one-celled frames

they look like humans but they’re shaped like sharks

circling around each other in ever-tightening spirals

black eyes flashing as their gazes catch and release

lips part to reveal gleaming teeth; their gills flutter, ready to speak

this is the moment where blood fills the water

this is the moment where love begins
