Thick With Conviction - A Poetry Journal
thick with conviction a poetry journal

Lucille Shulklapper

Plastic Ocean

Down, down, into madness,
a sea turtle, flippers limp,

floats on her back
in the salted sea,

pulls herself
slowly into her shell,

lies still
beneath the molten sun

until the first wave
washes over her

and she sinks
into the soothing.

Lucille Gang Schulklapper's work appears in many publications, as well as in four poetry chapbooks, What You Cannot Have, The Substance of Sunlight, Godd, It's Not Hollywood, and In The Tunnel. She lives in Coral Springs, Florida with her husband, a retired pediatrician, and a rescued cat named Zoe.
