Beginning (After Anne Sexton) By Kristen G


Whale on the beach, you dinosaur,

What brought you smoothing into this dead harbor?

I watched as you passed through: from water to sand,

Crabs to their shedded shells.

The fluffy waters swept you onto the thirsty shore.

You dropped tears of rubies

To the end.


Now, the bloodstained stones remain.

The red sea now is a red river,

Leading back.

Now, as the sand sticks to your wet skin,

You catch more glitter.
