Seahorses (from a dream)

Spiny number
fives. the teeth all up
and down

unzippering the ocean
to a salty
sequined
brine

Nickel-plated
guns

Pearl handled by
a hundred
watery
suns

inside out
the ocean

outlasting
everyone and

universal
sexy
you

Seahorses gallop
long the coral rail

one quarter mile
through
