Mina Polen



by Mina Polen


Approach my ocean bravely.
Your sails: sink them.
Your compass: twist it.
Your charts: burn them.
Hold your breath:
only mermaids allowed.

Approach my terra lightly.
Your geographical knowledge: ignore it.
Your guiding stars: rearrange them.
Release your breath,
get drunk with air.

Approach my depths gleefully.
Your weight: buoy it up.
Your wings: unfold them.
Keep holding your breath:
we are almost at the bottom.

Approach our skies rampantly.
Our solar system: untamed.
Our universes´ origins: unquestioned.
Our big bang: awaited.
No gravitational pull.




Mina Polen writes experimental & (allegedly) translingual fiction, poetry and nonsense on Twitter as @minafiction.

She also has a blog http://aldebaranylosnarvales.blogspot.com
