He called her hands dainty.
Little clay statues that moved finger by finger.
Pressing flowers to the morn -- so bright.
To his eyes.

For years she wiped away his sweat.
She changed their bed when he was done.
She felt those clay hands melt against
the rocks of shore.

She picked shells from his hair.
Whenever they kissed, coins fell
like rain to the sea. She plucked
quarters, half dollars. All sand.

One day she had enough of his shoreline.
She packed her coast and headed east.
Found a new bed of clams to rest and roast.
Her dainty hands lay still now.

Until she says again:
come to me, my love.
Send the clock over the edge.
Send us off the edge for me.


She said burn ... together.

That's 'cause it really isn't the last line ... dang, I need to edit this poem! But that goes against the idea of this. So let me just say, the last line SHOULD be "Send us off the edge for me."

Do you know how hard it would be to remember that in order to read it again? I'll just take the cheap way out. Done!
