Empathy

Symmetry: it must have
been the heat or the soft

cradle of waves from above.
It’s the only thing saving

the black water, so deep.
The sand is so enlightening

but the commitment
is too long–appearing

in the corner by the washing
machine, the trunk of the car.

I don’t want to take the time
to get to know the collage

of peach speckles, black
shark’s tooth, crab claw.
