Full Text:
if a crab makes poetry tide after tide rolling the plain beach
sand into words        strewn pointedly
 then our bare feet sinking a little in the wet as even gulls' feet
do are a sentence headed somewhere--
stingrays like sudden kites from the patches of bare sands lift off and
fly-- our feet in the shallows set off such sparks
in the seagrass hollows wormfish curl and uncurl their fern-like
tentacles-- catching what comes, while words step pointedly
here   and here
