May 2016
The dark pitch of night
swallows a white beach whole.

A light tower, a beacon,

holds hope captive, as it searches

wide-eyed, the waves beyond.

A volley ball named Wilson

teases the fickle, peeking shore,

with an open-handed face.

His rounded neck bobs, at the waves' inclination,

his gaze straining, lifting,

alighting on a striped base.

The perfect storm

laughs at the irony.

It is beneath him.

Rescue would've been imminent,
if Wilson had just been served.
