Timekeeper's Vigil

by James Walton (follow)
sand holds memory deep
impressions solid or grainy
separatedness
where bare footed joy
or the heel of empire
is finally stranded
out of time and place
interred the mighty the poor
this final peace
smooth and wet and dry and coarse
soldier crabs push history out
mould their harder treasures
against the corrugated tide weave
toes stumble there
hands juggle salty hope
the bay breathes in and out
scraping fingers rake
over the blackboard of living
to cross wrists with Odysseus
in homespun returns
