Abstract: SHARP AND SMOOTH The sea shifts and turns in its dune-smooth skin to list in toward shore for a final tapered heaping before it is toppled and rolled out thin. A yolk-fed turtle trundles across the sand and slides from the edge of a beach scalloped over and over in white and tan. Above on a tilting ledge of wind a sea hawk planes and waits for the turtle to reach a depth to dive in. II Sand and water heave from sea to land, settle and mix or split themselves on tins to rake all the shells into sand. I walk up the thick beach stumbling, stretch out and settle along the heat. Within my skin the water's retch and fall fumble for a shell to scrape into sand. I sleep by walking a see-3aw up to its balance, and wake at the tip that grates on land.
