About nesting birds (plovers), greater forces, and human beings not looking

Stones bulk large:


depleted plovers

scrape their smaller partners

into minute curves and ramps.


This junction

when the bird's weight

breasts and ties the shale in patterns

is the sea lords' making.


Stones sit on

like rigid eyes:

their stare worn silly

by the sea's corrosive pull,

their grating interplay -

uncanny masochism,


while the human heel

depletes the simple curve of eggs.
