Tonya R. Moore is a Public Safety professional from Bradenton, Florida with a penchant for writing speculative fiction.

Does the avatar sit still,
upon the sand dunes lamenting
the scarred whales with their
beautiful, sad eyes?

Do you see
sea unicorns piercing starlight?

Do your ashes miss the desert?
Do they know who She is,
the breathing Thing beneath your breast?

Who dreams the fires
of so many creation gods dancing?

Do your bones miss the buried
eons where Gilgamesh guards
the mountain of God
for days,
for thousands of years?

“Oh, never mind me.
I’m merely waiting,”
he says;
“For the tides to roll back in.”
