"Seahorse" by Sarah Young

The seahorse is both a central figure on the stage and an elaborate flourish. Stir what's in the pot and take a sip, it is both salty and sweet. Fish are drawn to her, and she encircles them. Seaweed bow to her, and she mimics their textures with her scaly patterns. Dressed in camouflage, she coyly peers at the viewer from a circular enclave. She is framed, and yet part of a complete motif.
