This Morning

Wandering boot heels
crunch cockleshells
razors and mussels

Shoes and toes
and paws
print the tideline

Cracks of twiggy
driftwood blend
with slips and pops

of bladderwrack
A souvenir oyster
-shell ashtray

an oil drum
litter bin
A mono community

of crows and catchers
get the tryout
of my new 842s

but the sun
is low, in my face
I don't register

the lack of wind
not until now
three days later
