From which the ocean changed its colors, where

Her babies solidified her anger and turned it, magically,

Into ice – of which the urchins and the sea goats

Kneaded chemically and turned the shore into

Its jovial mistress, homing and scattering amongst

Starfishes . . . beautiful Jezebel, a mermaid matriarch,

Enveloping her babies, journeying to her baffled seas.
