A cento is a poem formed entirely from lines from other media.
Drunk on the brine, my lover
is a large pot of apocalypse soup.
Beauty is a sad-mouthed, despair
-eyed albacore. The throbbing of
constellations wrecked upon my mind.
I am overboard for this metamorphosis,
ready to be raptured.
[Natalia Diaz’s When the Beloved Asks, “What Would You Do If You Woke Up and I Was a Shark?”]
