Kate Stone


rummaging ocean the lad with
the fish tail his oily hair overflowing with foam
around the waist deep cobalt eyes
and Crinaeae captures him with her skilful hands

cloven wooden ship in depressed water
albatross naiads under her bulk
plum into her mesh the universe
belongs to seaweed his beard live with
starfish dense saline mist shingles
his body tastes of bitter brew

Kate Stone is an art teacher, living with her husband and cat in Cork, Ireland. She loves working with her hands and has been featured in a few literary magazines, for instance The Mole and the Monkey.
