Crescent City is One Enormous Cosmic Tidepool

Nature raves in Crescent City

The rain beats a drumroll on the earth

The ocean eats the coast

The wind tears the great trees limb from limb

The waves hammer the seastacks into sand

The human presence clings like

     a limpet to a rock, crying

     please, please

          let me stay
