Papyrus - Poem by Maria StrawCinar

Egyptian morning with my husband
Awake after the deepest sleep
Like a Mummy with her daddy
Catacomb sarcophagus
Buried deep in sheets of sea
Papillion white layered chrysalis
Memory’s pointbreak surfer
rides the waves over her red admiral
(To die a death together and wake together)
A little death and life together
You prefer paper to china
Wolfing down the dark black magic
We drink ourselves to life
Semi-comatose addicts
Leading players in our marriage
A strong one like the coffee
A thousand sleeps have led me here
Older, slower, lashed by ancient pain
My heart’s valve is now released
Fragile as papyrus near the flame
Ashen white lady awoken from the Big Sleep
