Stars in the Sea

Published online in Dragonfly Review, 1999.

Just in that moment –[break]that still point[break]__________suspended

between ebb and flow

between crashing wave[break]and sucking wave

on a shallow beach[break]surf fizzing my ankles —

foam shadows shift[break]into stars

shining on underwater[break]sand

dark centers radiating[break]three–five–eight[break]spikes

slipping through my fingers[break]luminous


_______________________–miles now

stepping into stars[break]stars on my toes[break]all the liquid way.
