sea sponge fraying


by the sea face in face

a child’s visage open

fraught in fear, freedom and friendship 

predators, salt, sand

waves crash, rocks cut

chest crushing breaths

from watery garden sea sponge plucked

beside shells and stones

 by a farcical display

feigning, fawning, flaunting: fearful now

petulant sand in shoe

soaks nothing better

no return, no exchange
