Beach Party


What beauty can beat
the rush of water to shore,
to greet the anxious feet
that winter left bleached.

Until summer’s warmth adorns
milky skin with shades of bronze
to reduce the bright contrasts
of these two-piece suits worn

by these bums of the beach
whose minds find their peace
riding high on the frothy waves,
getting drunk on sea’s salty breeze.

Until the sky’s light dims low,
the noise of the day calms
leaves only the break of waves
the spark and crackle of flames.
