Siphonophorae (jellyfish)

a serrated wind carves the bay
the ice salt not solid
sheeting by silver
her running halo
narrow, wild, and old
nameless
the Grey-eyed Daughter
withdraws
her jewels
stud the sand

in an all-pearl place
shocking rose, lace,
hyacinth curls, gellid
glass of frost
all lost for stones
her veil runs north

in pallid crystal trails
across the strand

Her Names
