Black Savior (poem)

Footprints in sand. Marinha Grande, Portugal.

The sand beneath the water

Clouds beneath the tread

Of footsteps yet unseen

By the creature not in bed.

An angel of mercy,

A herald of death,

She held a bleeding starfish

In a fragile Dixie cup.

But trees can’t hold back the morning

Nor rocks hold back the tides

And within this epoch of shadow

A fellow creature dies
