to the sea unhinged

sand ribbons cut by the sea, trapped in an ancient ritual
murderous storms unfold prayer clouds on faithful currents
sandbar tongues lick the frayed edges – tasting roads
focusing impact, taking the wave, taking the timid
punching inlets, rolling sound-side trees to the beach
shrugging off houses and overturning horseshoe crabs
left with their spider-legs, kicking frantic toward the sky
in an open invitation, to be ripped free by the gulls
