Veiled


You, 
veiled behind a long
beaded screen of family,
only child capable,
responsible,
to them

Opportunism
abounds like seashells 
dropped by screaming gulls
smashed in the fall
photographed
sold

Accidentally,
like the ocean,
rise up with the tide
leave life behind
tear veil open-
adventure

You tell your story, set free
