Jaime de Angulo, "The Seal"

I a seal lie on the rocks warm in the sun.

I remember the Esselen, the Mukne,
The Saklan, all the tribes that lived
From the Sur to San Francisco Bay.

I dive in the water, and my head looks like a man
Swimming to the shore in the dusk.

I like at night to wander along the bright streets,
In the crowd.
