    In the wake of Jetties she’s said to be found
    safe from the pirates that stole her at birth.
    She made a life upon the rocks,
    her voice the music of a lonely tide.

    One clear day, he caught her eye
    as he ran from the shore,
    and dove head first into the sea.
    He swam.

    He swam hard;
    his muscles swelled, rolled
    with each stroke, gliding,
    swift as a blue marlin.

    Disguised as a dolphin
    she swam closer, making circles around him.
    His brown eyes were venerable
    as dauntless mountains.

    Each day he returned, until one day
    a rampant tide pulled him into the jetties,
    beat him against the rocks.
    He floated face down in blood clouded water.

    He awoke on the shore in a pouring rain;
    his hand clenched a gold clam shell.
    The wind of the storming surf sang out his name,
    and forever he wondered.
