they settle over the mud flats
like Concords,
bellies pink in the afterglow
and the day surrenders
to the inaccessible nights

i hear the soft bugle of mates
acquaint the young in grey flannel
with a world made for them,
a singular devotion to an unknown faith

they tilt wings chosen by angels
and drop their black paddle feet
to the salted beds of resurrection,
the cradle of a just sea

then the hush of divine stillness
as they rest illumined and infinite
under a moon of countless winters
