Nice piece, Phil, well suited to the periodical.  I like the opportunistic nature of the rhymes, not forcing form, and definitely resisting tugs from the Great Sonnet Tidal Pool to just let the poem express itself and be done.  Frankly, an artificially imposed volta or capstoning rhyming couplet would probably disturb this open-aired piece.  I could learn from your example here.

Well Done,
 - David
