Maybe they are the spawn
of the serpent who prowled and tempted Eve,
cast into the saltwater.
from "Beneath the Surface" by Priscilla Lee
I first met Priscilla Lee when I started working at Oracle and we were both technical writers in database engineering. Her book Wishbone is one of my favorites.
One of the things I love about Priscilla's poetry is how rooted in California it is. I love her dark sense of humor.
