Tide Table
Leadbetter Point, Willapa National Wildlife Refuge

beyond the edge of words a fading line
surrendered into silence syntax moved
directing where to stalk or pantomime
in semaphores the byways unimproved
beyond the edge of worlds a falling dream
that seeks to beach the tidal rising fast
past current rush through estuary sea
runs eeling too a salted push of grass
for refuge snowy plovers poised to lift
from mudflat nests gone boggy skyward hail
upended wintering down a calling cliff
beyond the edge of worth what loss unveils
inscription on the fly leaf constant no
ellipses still how much I do not know
