de la playa

Valpo 1

la playa

holes burrowed in the damp sand/shells, skins, feathers embedded in the sand/broken glass and trash, bottles hidden in the shadows of the sand

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.

The other guy follows, dives into the sandy waves.

Their girlfriends watch from the shade, laugh. Shake their heads. They throw a blow up ball, smile. Shake their hips.

houses built upon the hills/grasses grown upon the hill/rocky cliff of dying grasses on the hills that overlook

la playa

a seagull drops a shell, its half full contents pour pink onto the porous ground.
