ghost crabs we crouch in the october sand to watch as the ghost crabs operate their graveyards. burry wedding rings & sea glass & teeth. a shipwreck happens every seven seconds. we close our eyes & pretend it is not happenings. it is not a year at all. we all are still walnuts. the ocean spits another mermaid on shore. she has daggers for teeth & wild blackberry eyes. the ghost crabs come to trim her hair. they say, "you will never fall in love like this." i will never fall in love like this, waiting. waiting for a whale to fall from the sky.
