Just Outside

Far from the fumes, our

polluted illusion in

clear resolution.

~

A distant hum outlines the

silence. The falling sea settles in

oily currents by the rocks.

~

A large gull slowly flaps above the

channel, pitches, meets its reflection, splashing

sofly, drifting backward on the tide.

~

A caterpillar crawls in

the hot white sand. A magical bird

flutters in shimmering light.

~

Black smoke joins a brown

band staining the horizon,

car engines straining.
