A Saturday Sentry

Morgue File by davidpwhelan

a heron stands
         one-legged sentry
         poised with watchful eye
         the gate-keeper

fish tell him their stories
of young birthed in brine and mud
marsh golems 
fins outstretched
toward an uncertain future

they pinch reality in the cheek
as tenacity bubbles in their water

warning of a retreating shore
