Today (Fingerprints)

I walked up to the house along the meadow cautiously
not sure if it was the right one or not
and met an old man on the porch shaking involuntarily from age
who gave me a cardboard box
full of Dungeness crab shells
that washed up on Manresa
perfectly intact,
some still with dehydrated eyes,
but most just with holes
where they once lurked a weird window.
