Sea-change

Do you ever wonder
about those 29,000 rubber ducks
that spilled into the ocean

out of a ship that left
a Hong Kong harbor
14 years ago?

I want to imagine
the last small band
has found its way

to a shallow inlet
in Alaska or Greenland,
white as bone or ash,

now almost
indistinguishable
from the landscape.
