The wind smooths dunes,

sea oats, and sundew:

a hand straightening

a duvet.

I wade, ankle-deep,

and skip sand dollars.

The waves smother

their plunks.

One of these creatures

pauses in my palm;

its monstrous hairs

still shuffle.

I could let it dry out,

die slowly on a windowsill,

or quick

in a tub of bleach.
