The moon 
a mere 
three hundred thousand 
kilometers away. 

Bends the space time 
below my feet. 

Twists it. 

So the sea 
runs 
away. 
Dragged into the curve of space. 

Over and over 
and 
over again. 

Water leaving sand ..... 
slowly 
uncovering 
(by forces beyond 
comprehension). 

The crab, 
a witness. One of 
many. 

Carries 
his balls of sand. 

On reaching the flat expanse, 
a decision. Where? 

Where, exactly for this 
particular ball? 

On this day? 

What pattern today, my friend? 

To repeat yesterday's existence .. 

or 

perhaps today, 

perhaps a slight 
variation on the theme. 

For who but I 
in this vastness 
will ever notice. 

Yes, today. It is the day. 

Water covering sand 
slowly 
covering again 
(by forces beyond 
comprehension).
