Beachcomber’s Song

I became a shell of myself,
The fleshed gourdy organs
In time all moved out.

I was missed on your beaches
By the gulls and the fleet,
The tides could not reach

Nor know in my life
The beauty of self.
Others collected

For vases back home;
I am still here,
Cold shell and alone.
