There are more to them than
name and symmetries
colors and textures
dwelling in the vastness of
a fluidity that marks
their nooks and crevices
edges and eyes grasping
the folds of an ocean.

They are particularly significant
in the arrival and departure
of their occupants:

It’s a lonely void, otherwise.
