Sea Urchin
Madeline Mora-Summonte

     The sanderlings scuttle away from the Gulf’s lapping tongue.
     A stuffed bear clings to the shore like a castaway. The birds nudge it over. One glass eye stares, unseeing.
     They skitter toward a small sneaker. One bird pulls at the knotted laces. Another dips into the bloody remains trapped inside.
