You know what life is?

Let’s start at the beach.

Although you live miles away

That’s what you always try to reach.

 

As a notion it is sweet

As a picture it is even sweeter

As reality rarely does soul meet

Its real reflection or greater.

 

Why the beach you ask

Why so much blue, yellow, red and white?

Why do we need to task

Ourselves to a pulp till we salivate the site?

 

Because it’s a goal

It’s easy, it’s out there

Though people might smudge through coal

They still want

That which is beyond compare

 

So 365 are traded for six or twelve

So many days looking over one’s shoulder

Waiting for the promised self

To meet its other at some land’s border

 

Perhaps that’s where our split soul spies

Its twin on the other side

Perhaps the waves’ sounds are our cries

Transmitted to the globe with the tide.
