my favorite season
a 2.99 cent hat
one or two beachtowels all striped the colored umbrellas dotting
this is where we peel off everything
curing the ills of winter
the bonechill of the dark
and we run, running into waves, running into glisten the water shimmering around us the waves lapping at our barest feet the seabirds crying
on the edges of this particular shore
