SUN DOG

rough spirit

cascading terns close in upon

fractured limestone surface

grey agglomerate, well pimpled

sea silently sorting the silt

size one, size two, size three, onwards

making smooth the blessed beach

by means of current and froth

patient and exact, impressive in its

manly measurement

lone dog, scruffed-up, ears flapping

leaves pristine prints along the golden length

trace fossils, roughly folded into the feldspar grit
