Low Tide

ruffles kelp beards shoals of minnows leap
a shower of raindrops in reverse an egret
waits it’s eternity to strike the dishes done
leftovers put away the dusk falls swallows
hop sparrows seaweed rocks squander
language wood meets water makes dock
mussels gulp open close open dark-gray
cloud wings horizon wide until banded
together a lighthouse moans deep heartbreak
here not here here not here here not
