Capitola Beach

Standard

Capitola Beach

Blue-green algae on a feather
encircled by seagrass or kelp
toes dig and grind

The pelicans are active today
soar…circle…dive with a last-minute tuck
the lesser birds rush in after
hoping

Can any of them see, or is it just that?
hoping
instinct

I hear her before I see her
“I’m not deserting it,” — annoyed
“I just feel like being in the water right now.”
defensiveness wrapped in lime-green lycra

The little boy stands in an unfinished castle.

Obviously the importance of the work was lost on her.
