"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."

After the hurricane:

sun lasers through
a pinhole in the cloud cover
a waking flicker

like the pebble
of the flounder's eye

barely beaconing
from under the sand, the rest

of its flat camouflaged body
bedded, burrowed

for safety under the blanket
of the ocean floor.
