At the Beach

The ice sheet breaks away as warm

salt water pushes upward and swirling,

whipped up winds fed by burned out

fossil fuels hasten the break away and,

as time goes by, beach front Florida all

the way to Maine slips into the sea.

Tsunamis play Lego “tear down” with

abandoned condos still belonging to

people who have taken cover behind a

three-story sand dune along the shore

of Lake Michigan while brackish water

snakes its way up the second story caus-

ing blow-outs on the lake-side opposite

where the squatters cower and listen to

the roar of the waves and water crashing

on land.
