body at momentary rest

on a warm beach winds blow from the East

in a new direction inspired by expectations unmet

touching my other side unfamiliar with its force

combing through my hair


the tides that lap have traveled

a thousand miles across the Atlantic


washing my feet from the residue of experience


and sand free from gravity

meets me in salt air

as if to exfoliate sun-aged skin

and reduce me to simplicity again
