floating lazy girl

cheap sheers billowing
sails concave free of their masts
distant rumbling trains replace desolate ship moans
generous skies mimic seas of powder blue
flailing sparrow songs octaves up
high-altitude seagulls perhaps
aromatic sea salts stuffed
in cardboard cylinders
it’s been awhile since I’ve slept on warm sand
can’t remember the last time I heard laughter on the beach
needed the ocean today
settled for the Lazy Boy by the window
sipping modest merlot
waiting for the undertow to pull me out to sea
lazy girl
