across? too many times beside,
it gets harder.

by day driftwood
etched and pocked by
time and motion
thick shaft splits into a Y
just so,
waves like fingers
take fistfulls of sand
carry them away from me.

by night i pace, anywhere
but standing still
i am the water's edge
on fire for the coming tide
if not you, then who
will wash me down.
