Briny, lipid tide


Ripped skin


Humid dazed

Baked &



Sun bright &


Bare foot,

Bare chested


Willful & wanton

unmolested youth.


No diving.

My passing

will be

written on leaves,

etched in bark,

& lost

to the wind.

sandy toed
foot laid planks
sandy pilings sank
nettle nets
& wait.


winter toes
walk slow
misted breath
hangs low.


how does it go?
“A long walk
off a short pier”


this life.
