"pink hands"

I kick off my sandals
and break water in the sand

with bare feet
and pink hands

a see-through peel, like fruit
tossed to the sea-foam

my new eyes ripen to the ocean waves
and the ocean waves "hello"

it was about this time last year
I said something like "goodbye"

but I never want to die again

I kick off my sandals
and color in the sand
