someone carved in the sand

amid the foaming waves
perfect strangers' footsteps
seaweed debris mess-
ages of affection confessed
at the most uncertain of places
perhaps like the feeling itself?

two words: Te AMO
shouted from the edge
one world fallen for another

as the sea hastens to embrace
cut to the quick erasing

  2. that would do! just the minimum, not the maximum . . .
