and two couples, young, hide under the boardwalk with blankets and a tent. One guy strips, throwing off a fedora, to his underpants while running to the surf.

houses built upon the hills/grasses grown upon the hill/rocky cliff of dying grasses on the hills that overlook
a seagull drops a shell, its half full contents pour pink onto the porous ground.
