“Breach” By: Jennifer Lagier

The sea boils with a combination
of brown kelp and anchovies.
 
Terns fling themselves from gray sky,
belly flop like clowns, disappear under water.
 
Lacy umbrellas erupt across agitated bay.
Breaching whales spout just off shoreline.
 
Wherever birds congregate, misty blow follows.
Behemoth flukes rip apart silver waves.
 
This is a prehistoric flashback: wet, raw
planet that teems with magnificent monsters.
