When Eldest Is Away
A neighbor’s sidewalk’s empty.
All that’s left,
a jagged strip of masking tape.
“$1 hardcover,” it says.
The end of the pier’s the most crowded
it has been in a while.
Some locals prefer when the cold weather
comes, when the beach is abandoned.
A dolphin named Winter
lost her tail in a crab trap.
Does the amputated appendage
continue to haunt, to hurt, her?
