To picnic with the ocean

To picnic with the ocean. One need only be present,

attentive and prepared. 

To sit and stare and wonder at what she has prepared.


We are told at the table to:

“Close your mouth, sit up straight…

Finish all that’s on you plate!”



I do not mind watching the sea eat.

To behold.

The ebb of a bite as the great mouth chews, 

And gnaws,

And crushes. 


Cliff and ground…

Torn down.
