Today's poem is by Victoria McArtor

Dark Skies Save Lives

of sea turtles

            hatching and touching through sand

            remember the labyrinth was first

intestines        and the shape was used

            to predict the future

reaching out to find landscape is

                        merely a projection

            of the inside


it's hard to know we're in darkness

until the bright breaks

            this was disorientation too

claws where the hands should be
