Spiritual Starfish


Asalamu Alaykom,




I've been searching for---
no, not for---
I've been searching
with
a spiritual starfish


Among many exes
I was surprised to see
one exo
skeletal friend
supportive; protective;
mine.  For me.


It was injured in the move---
the moves of many---
and from my immobility.
Yet it survived and thrived
ready to grow another limb of
spirituality.


Together, he ---
or she---
(I'm not sure which and
I'm too shy to pry)
We two are going through
these seas to seize
what we might
be.


Just a woman with inabilty
and a spiritual starfish
growing bigger, stronger
each limb growing longer
even if by chance
I break

Together we regenerate
