this movement of blue

this movement of blue

no safeguarding sandy playground
shields this age worn land
movements of blue and green and grey
shape uncreative buttresses
by touch and motion

the sweep of tide
a watery broom
purges exposures debris
the discards of work and leisure
incomplete scavenges
loose flotsam
pushed on

in quiet places
sheltered from direct attack
havens form for fragments
a vane escaping
from the inevitability of surge
and returning might
of the moons revenge
