Shells on a Sandy Beach

A crab lived and died.
Empty claws and carapace
sing an elegy.

  1. The photo’s art describes an unchallenged meal, and I imagine a solitary gull, gliding over a deserted beach, adding its voice to the silent elegy. Yet — with apologies — I can’t prevent what follows:

    For those who cannot
    use the little fork, the claws
    are too much trouble.
