An Explanation

DPS

A dromedary
caravan
carrying packages
and messages,
they slip
into the ocean
at sunset
somewhere below
San Francisco.

They dog paddle
with wide hoofed feet.
No sound
under moonlight
and stars.

Sun rises,
and so on:
For weeks
they churn
through desert
of blue.

Arriving
in Queensland,
clambering
onto the beach
postage due.

Explaining to @marousia why the chapbooks took a little while to arrive in Australia.  😉
