Slow Motion

The sun is sitting flat in the sky between two clouds
Seaweed arrived on the shore late last night
with the rains and bass from the sky
Of all the sands, only these particular ones chose to stick to my toes
I wonder how far they’ve traveled to meet me
and think of the distance I’ve come to join them
The waves challenge every swimmer
Everyone yields
A freighter offshore recreates the horizon, adding extra lines
Interruptions, interruptions, interruptions
The masses wander and sprawl, ever looking
Our eyes are not the only way to see
and with words is not the primary way to speak
I imagine a shield around me as the feet trample closely by
and watch the green and white curl in slow motion
