Measure Me with Coffee Spoons

by Emily

“I think that if you hold my heart up to your ear you might hear the sea. Waves crest behind my eyelids and crash against my cheekbones. My lungs are filled with salt air in the coldest of winters and the darkest of days. And behind the cage of my rib bones you’ll find coral reefs and sea urchins among the debris. You can dive to endless depths and never see quite all of me. I think that if you hold my heart up to your ear, you might hear the sea.”
