A STRANGE PLACE TO CALL HOME

(excerpt)

On the Rocks

limpets

 

In the intertidal zone,

     where waves are prone

to be forceful,

     where the waters rush

to batter, buffet, crush,

     dislodge, displace, fling,

a limpet is resourceful.

      It’s fine construction

employs suction.

     In other words, its thing

is mightily to cling.
