Beach song



Wind ruffles water

ripples on my skin


like new silk


undulating current

ullalah carries me


in ocean’s womb.


Sun scorches body

burns to bone


fingers sift sand

fragments of time


shattered coral

glides through.


Eye narrows

to catch flying


fish flash silver:


later the moonlight

casts crescent shadow


mad preacher screams

his song of hellfire


waking children

promising damnation


still this paradise

slip slides


its slice of heaven.
