Bury me alive in a coconut
womb while marimba knells
echo through the skin, milk,
and bones. I want to become
a cumbia for percussion
filled souls, as black seagulls
spiral frenetically above. Our melody
will be ripped apart into notes,
a scattered rhythm of warmth,
this soft call from the coast:
until your shell is broken.
