Ocean Song

dim and outsized
the tides were a terrible burden

endless symptoms of reclamation, the
beginnings of elsewhere lapping at your feet

and in their shallow retreat
carving to the perfect absence

there is nothing else in nature that so cleanly
and precisely marks what isn’t there

or that measures with such gleeful abandon
your growing distance from it
