SANDPIPER LEGS

 

 

 

 

 

I sit pleasantly under misshapen

clouds where cool linen sweet breezes

fan me while pretending I am young

running the beach with sandpiper legs

IMG_1044king of the day

carrying candy and french fries;

there is ketchup on my cheek

as the waves flush noisily onto

a soft sand shoreline

where I challenge my courage

against the cold water

and the girls nearby

watching.
