Coral Reef



Coral Reef 

I read how coral reef grows in toxic waters
on things like rock and steel and wire.
These small underwater towns
grow from themselves and sustain life
for half the ocean

The doctor tore those sick breasts from my mother’s body
as divers must take the damaged coral from its reef
so that life can keep on taking what it needs. 

Everything that once gave me life inside my mother
was later poisoned and ripped from her. 

Maybe that is how I came here, too,
poisoned and ripped from her.
