Fine Silica
by Emily Portman

Little grain in my throat
Made of fine silica
Splits into a thousand seeds
They glow white and whiter

My mouth is full of ocean pearls
Made of fine silica
I’ll give them to a little girl
Who grows white and whiter

I could swallow them down
They would glow from the inside
I could swallow them down
Hardened tears never cried

But I will string them round your throat
Peals from fine silica
Each pearl a breath, a shining note
So you’ll breathe underwater

Put a pearl in your mouth
Dive underwater
Your breath will turn to shining beads
They’ll glow amongst the waterweeds
They’ll split into a thousand seeds
Finest of treasure

I could swallow them down
They’d glow from the inside
I could swallow them down
Hardened tears never cried…

But I will string them round your throat
Peals from fine silica
Each pearl a breath, a shining note
Breathe underwater
