Secchi Depth

cherish your bliss

like the kiss of tide

the snappers ride

in a trick of light

brightening shoals

for prismatic eyes

carbon capturing creatures

that measure the pounds

of their feet on stone

hunkered down alone

in resistance to the tug

of the breaker’s tongue

that licks the foam

between coated pilings

as i dance wiley

under a fading sun’s grin

tomfoolery and shenanigans

plowing the surf of seriousness

take my hand and search your soul

stroll the stubbled sand

where quartz is honed

and i soak you in

a slow sensuous sinking

through my porous skin
