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.
