the beach at midnight
By Gene Williamson

he walks to free the mind
to void the day’s accumulated anxiety

alone with the moonless beach

on the black sea a tiny light
riding the swells soon disappears

beyond the dunes a stifled sound
startles him he turns to run
trips over the flotsam of a sunken ship
sprawls in the sand
in his head the slap of the surf
the breeze
the rustle of trees

the night excited by erotic cries

awkwardly he retreats from the dunes
and the whisper of the pines
abandons the surf

troubled thoughts immersed
in the isolation of the midnight beach

he walks away from yesterday
