Beach day part 1

April in Santa Cruz and

The Weather said hot.

So you have a whole entire beach
To yourself because Monday.

Waves glass-green and
Cormorants plunge into their
Little pied a mer.

That well-used phrase
“Salty tang” springs to mind
Leaving you scrambling for Another Way to Say It
(the poet’s curse and blessing).

Still you have the nerve to wonder
“When will it get hotter?” and
“Wherever will I go to pee?”
