TOTEMS

In fevered mornings, the salted sky
has halfway birthed her fiery sun.
All day the houses will guard the sea
with totems of windsocks and briny shells: 
a foamy shoreline where bones of 
dreams and shards of thoughts
are laid to rest, reclaiming the child
you were, spread-eagled, creature 
to God, God to creature.
