Time roams
that tidal space
of give and take
deposits pearls
and other invitations
scours fractured stucco
from foundations
unravels the kilim's
heavy, woven history
beneath bared feet
the spent hourglass
sand's end
bats white lashes
tugs our child's name
we laugh and plunge
dolphins in the infinite blue.
