yorkies and seashells

___

saltwater clouds
dancing clearly under the sun
minnows swimming

shallow four inches
yorkie puppy leads father
a very straight line

until the puppy
wants to see the girl lying
bright beach towel sand

alpine or supine
always confusing the two
leash wrapped in his hand

lawn chairs in the shade
wife goes to airy beach
comes back with 4 seashells

“it’s our family”
three are white and one is black
“that’s so obvious”

he tells her that’s him
african american
the other three white

“yes i was too pregnant
ten years ago, aren’t
any of you bitc_es”

tenth high school reunion
how she talks to her friends
now ten years later

new jersey firemen
also having private party
way down south
