by a sea

some are sun people gold,  skin of mamma’s pearl and coconut; they diggin up sand for a castle.

 

seaweed people washed up on a beach too, skin of fishin hooks and broken shells; they ain’t gettin no castle.

 

we are all fools of the tides, always  afraid of what time it is or what is comin for the lives we’ve made; our nude skin shivers at the things that could wash us away

 

but off in the distance, the white waves roll and never stop.
