in florida sun

how often do i stand in the tide
on the beach outside
under the florida sun
with my shirt undone
and my wife by my side
with her feet in the tide?

we do not do the things we should
all the things on tv are good
you become a tv dinner being
locked into the drama you’re seeing
ignorant of all you are fleeing

there are moments of squirrel pause
stood there out of doors
animals moving across forest floors
hermit crabs on flotsam jetsam shores
