BACK TO THE BEACH / SKINNY DIPPING

Lightening shock our travel sick

Bodies back to the beach

Wind whip our snapped tent

Around our sleeping heads.

Rain drench, drip, drive

The city from our skin.

This is how electricity was born

A wall dismembered in storm

For stones to anchor our canvas home.

 

Jellyfish hearts shocking at the cold

Of river dragged bodies smacking into

The Ocean’s frothy lips

Veins tentacles electric

Jolting our offering of nakedness

Scaped as clean as the pebbles

We didn’t have the pockets to fill with.

When we climb out

Numbskulled as cavemen

Our songs will get trapped in the shells.

We are evolution

The rock forgot our fossils

But remembers our footholds.

    I like this bit.
    Did you notice how the point of articulation moves back and forth line by line? Did you do it on purpose?
    First the front of the mouth (sounds of the ‘w’s, ‘sn’ and the ‘t’s use lips and/or teeth), then somewhere around the cavity of your mouth, to the back-ish cavity in the third and finally back to the teeth.

    Thanks for an enjoyable piece! (And also following my blog!!)
