Island Valentine

How many lives on earth
have we backed into
resisting re-immersion
in a mineral body
a stone that in itself
symbolizes millennia
of lives laid down to this
curious twist of coral
let’s swim to the other island
we think but nobody says it
that island out there
where the lost are gathering
where the sun is building
a whole new body
for a whole new earth
