Sinusoidal Rhythm

Sea brine, barnacles. Commingling fuel.
Just before the frenzy, seagulls wheel overhead
screeching like evangels. The off-season waits,
lake unrippled, hymeneal.

Marina men with gleaming torsos roll out on dolleys;
pools of grease ooze like violence beneath them. Their eyes
slide over me Their smelling-salt sweat makes me wonder
where their mouths have been.
