Brent S. House
Gulls embellish desire as coast
scents of salt breeze the banks
least tern coast vapid currents
a far eye drawing land in sight
pressure of retribute wind
gambles neon & plied antebellum
mansions bearing wind
without sounding dross or beauty
an equal rage of desire
& deep gray in winds wake.
