Shadows in Chalk

Shadows in Chalk
at the White Cliffs of Dover

Silken outlines on a wall with scars and scrapes,
crystallized and hidden places.

Shadows leaning hard against a white cliff face
above a channel, splitting continents.

Silhouettes in sediment, of a hundred thousand years,
sea creatures crushed to dust, soaked with rain and blood.

Shapes unchanging only while the sun remains,
immortalized in chalk, lines we scrape and wipe away.
