  • Jewels of the Ocean
    by Ellen Million

    Shimmering floats,
    glistening sails,
    and clouds of gossamer tendrils,
    like ladies' skirts at a theatre opening.

    Cold amethysts in the west,
    rose quartz in the central gulf.

    Jewels of the ocean.

    No less deadly
    for their beauty.

    This poem references sea monsters from Torn World, specifically the jellyrigger, which comes in two varieties, a purple and a pink. These monstrous jellyfish are able to steer themselves using a crude sail, and are a hazard to sailors in Torn World. The jellyrigger was created by Elizabeth Barrette.
