San Mollala

Our true position
has a rusting toy pail
of dying starfish
under it.

It is a bench
near a railing
separating the sea
and San Pedro.

On the other end
of the icon spectrum
a Greyhound bus
is remembered.

Rodeo clowns
in ragged vestments
use pails of confetti
to cool off Mollala.

But the starfish
of San Pedro
cannot be confused
with confetti.

A cow bell wind
calls in
seagulls
like lifestyles
to a starving
world.
