Bones and stones and shells,
accretions of each in each
because of water.
Let me stand, to my tender belly
where filaments of bone wave
inside glimmering fish
between strands of sea grass.
Gulls break shells
for flesh that melts like mine,
whole sea yolks…
whole lives, in water embodied,
fed, carried, dissolved…even stones…
in water, reflected by the sky.
