Margin: Exploring Modern Magical Realism


The starfish
came home curled
      in a tightly
   closed bucket of sand,
stashed in the garage
   with the beach chairs.

                              We forgot.
When we opened the lid
expecting stench
there wasn't even smell --
just rough beige

sifting through our sticky fingers.
