Sand struck


Last night’s silver ladder

has turned to golden stairs

tide crosses the boardwalk

we queue for sunset;

women hover like hummingbirds

skin sweet ,eyes sucking

beach boy’s barter

jet ski rides for kisses.


Each grain of sand

perfectly formed

like a mini universe

turned by the tide

stuck to my foot

carried home

to the cruel north

to burn me.
