Far out to sea, rakish sea lions converse
with St. Francis beneath the steely scrim
of Pacific fog. Their barking can be heard,
tenor notes against the baritone of foghorns.
-- Phoenix: Transformation Poems by Jessica Goody. I love this image because it reminds me of when I lived in San Francisco. I could hear the foghorns (and sometimes the sea lions) from where we lived in Cow Hollow.
Phoenix was recently on tour with Poetic Book Tours.
