Sessile

she’d shed so many shells
along the way – so many incarnations –
she cemented herself like a barnacle
too jaded to bother now with a charade
of independence


Nature Notes:
Barnacles are kin to lobsters and crabs and like them, go through larval stages of developement.
Sessile means immobile
