earth note 389

the mobile homes
on the canal
were placed
almost half a century ago
temporary has evolved
into permanent temp
like a seven dollar fifty cent
stuck in low tide
with no way out
to the bounty
of the trophy fishers
just beyond an arm's length
where your trusty reach
is a sign of manna
where only the sun
speaks your language
deep mangroves
your only peace
