Pink summer

twenty cheerleaders
hot pink bikini circles
d j plays for me

party on rooftop
forgetting it was friday
changing days around

never have you seen
so many hot pink bikinis
in one blue pool

cheerleaders remind
family guy’s peter griffin
water ballet

in another life
i was a gefilte fish
pike whitefish and carp

how very polite
extremely wrong “you don’t mind
if i smoke do you”

why would i mind
came outside to cough sawdust
plaster and mold away

why would you pick me
entire reason i’m here
is for clean sea air

three mormon women
ottie and annie also
join me for cocktails

mine was water
they were discussing shots
but probably were joking

world war two movies
writing book about the war
ask if i’m mormon

“my bitter friend is”
so i know you couldn’t be
drinking alcohol

if you have your health
nothing more to want than
sky saxophone floating

most beautiful pool
two three dimensional kites
saxophone plays jazz

warm “bathwater” calms
cool wind blows everywhere
you don’t want to get out

people are shouting
at me like they usually do
not in haiku

“your favorite color
is purple isn’t it”
man on white sidewalk

laugh and shake head yes
even though you were thinking
blue after he left

purple wrist key
noodle top sandals was his
logical reasoning

silly raccoon
sleeping in Y hears toes grass
goes down inside tree trunk

lifeguard flip flops

everything funny
begins and ends at walmart
this may be the end

walmart for people
with very large shoes to fill
elevens only

flipping in the sand
one year four sizes too big
stolen one hour

twenty dollar flip
not three dollar walmart pair
did you lose something

yes lost my temper
you look like you lost something
very observant

a pair of lifeguards
deducing thoughts in your head
WAVElength frequency

Next Day

“find stolen shoes
next time leave at life guard stand”
WERE TWO FEET BEHIND you

“we don’t look behind us”
you watch people’s shoes?
“well no not really”

“but who is going
to steal from the lifeguard stand”
a sociopath ?

sub sea sand

baby lizard came
to play or to eat cheez its
that is the question

was a short visit
just came to say how do you do
a lovely day

sliding glass toes
massaging and softening
nature’s pumice jewel

Last Resort braugher
story of a submarine
oceanic thoughts

andre is back
alive and kicking in Brooklyn
samberg his sidekick

will andy samberg sing
“i got somethin’ real important
to give you”

sargeant has twins
he must build a pink doll house
cagney and lacey

play sprinkle city
on their phones at the precinct
just send me cupcakes

“eight dollarest wine”
perfect for entertaining
goes with everything

summer with J

as far as you can
see hundreds on sand waiting
for citizenship

what country please
we swam a very long way
eye of the storm

jellies everywhere
translucent hot pink ribbons
each different motif

one tiny bubble
shaped like baby octopus
totally clear

giant pink hearts
sporting two long tentacles
twelve inches long

circular brown
triangular his outer
different from others

floating butterfly
saltwater in your veins
one in every crowd

finally got it up
troubles with his blue kite
flying in the sky
`
” Bodies in the sand
to get away from it all = beach boys / kokomo
where we wanna go ”

two hours in the sand

do sheep get itchy
are some allergic to wool
you have to wonder.
`
Sophie the Dog

sophie was all wet
she looked at parents like they
pushed her into hole

hole in the ocean
she misjudged no judging
told me her plight

she told me to walk
very warm at the ocean
windy here by ducks

she stands far away
knowing duck could pull her in
felipe is tricky.
`
In the Sand

almost erased
i love nolan and conner
by the next waves

( i love conner too
scott peterson erased him
erased laci too ).

Mr. Blond Mullet

he caught two blue fish
one as i walked behind him
return second blue

while i was away
shark jumped on his minnow
snapped thirty test.
`
An Old Seventeen

sweet home schooled boy
“are you that jewish lady
from last october ”

five two and five ten
sinking deeper into sand
teenager and i .

every october
he said “keep up the good work”
told him to “drive safe ”

we laugh at silly
expressions people say to us
” you’re doin it ”

“Stay There”

remember last year
he crossed the creek at high tide
to tell me something.

Family Walk

sister walks head down
three miles searching for shark teeth
today she found two .
`
Black Dress & Eyeshadow

” i’m doing a model shoot ”
six year old child .

White Doggy

twelve year old lucy

” i love my daddy “.

saturday jellyfish shuffle

push him to the left
when ocean covers his head
he floats back to sand
`
under the boardwalk
down by the sea gay mullet
jumping in schools.

deviled crab running
underneath on bottom
giant pink jellyfish.

floating against grass
guy says “look at that toad fish”
silly it’s a crab.
`
(At Sea)
six tiny nibbling fish
dining on the bad fate
one used as bait.

dining sounds sweet
but really i stop myself
from saying this:

sociopath six
and the horrible fisherman
who killed him.

but i knew the man
tis october where is he
look up he’s waving.

why can’t you use
a bang -o -lure or rapalla
be a good sport.
`

Beach Boys/ Under The Boardwalk:

“I’ll Love You right there
In the Sand under the Boardwalk
Down by the Sea”.

“As the Sun goes Down
We’ll Take a walk along the Strand
I want to go”.

“On a blanket
With my baby that’s where I’ll be
Under the Boardwalk”.
