Low Tide

the withdrawing tide
peels away the water and
strips the shoreline naked

smooth stones pock the
dirty yellow sand and
strands of black seaweed sprawl across
bone white driftwood

seagulls paddle in shallow pools as
blackbirds skip over
empty beer bottles and a
rusted bicycle wheel

man’s careless neglect exposed
the wind mewls and
grey clouds cry bleak tears
