Huntington Beach I (overcast)



the clouds

are timid,

never once

daring to leave

their tight embrace

of the sea


Huntington Beach II (clutter)


A dirty beach --

here where I stand

scattered pieces

of peoples' lives

clamor for

the attention

of the beleaguered sand


Huntington Beach IV (overcast)


They possess it completely,

greedily stretching

their dingy sheets

across unseen sky

leaving us

grays --

and a tired ocean
