Lila: "not what it seems?"

He

is like driftwood (beaten and weary with the

relentless pounding

of the waves) washing

onto my polluted beach

/grocery store bags and plastic

cans littering

black sand/

common (trash) and dull I

thought, when I saw the warped

backbone and faded sheen of

foam (quickly drying) but

I

could

be wrong.

(( not ))
