she made the trips several times before
and if luck is with her, she’ll continue
to do so for decades, soon she’ll stop eating
living on fat she stored

fuelled by instinct and passion
her migration might be mysterious to others
but she sees the ocean different, following its current

whether it veers

close to shore
or out again
to fathomless
soft salt liquid
