On the Ship

  1. The channels. The breaker rolling back against
  2. the sand. The channels and the laugh.
  3. The twin. The laughter of the twin
  4. rehearsed. The inlet. The little fire
  5. lighting up the sand, electrical. Growing
  6. underneath. The pier. The laughter of
  7. the other, unheard. Piles of wood
  8. rolling back against the pier. The fire.
  9. The water. The inlet. The sunset
  10. giving way to malice between twins.
  11. The twins. The wet log ringed with
  12. fire near the breakers. The flock of
  13. sea gulls circling the pier. Wet wood
  14. merged with laughter. The line. The shore.
