11 Jan

The turquoise waves lap at the shore like artificially-flavored tropical punch

As their salty scent wafts on the sloppy wet breeze,

Clinging to my red burnt skin like a second layer of sweat.


The sand is black and gritty like ash,

The sun is a ball of hot happy light,

Yellow as the yoke of a hard-boiled egg.

Try as I might, I can’t thwart the grin that tugs at the corner of my mouth.
