It is true, there is a place where you can find wild Calla Lilies on sea stacks and everything you need lives and grows at the beach. Beach onions! Beach salamanders! Beach mushrooms! And of course, beach bones!
There is a woman waiting here, tucked within the dunes, under the waking lupine bush. Just-born light zips across the yellow-green buds and lands upon her flesh where it rests for a while before moving on to warm other people’s stories. It likes to spend time with her body, it feels safe here. She is patient and understanding, doesn't expect much of it, only promise never to leave her. And so the two wait with each other, with what they are allowed.
