The Town That Fell Into The Sea

The ocean hides, sitting low like the winter sun.

Its sound seeps through knolls

Through sand, vine, and footprints

Through trees rooted in confused snarl

Threading lightly between our anonymous hands

Our faces washed away

 

Until the lights of Highway 101

Reattach themselves to the coast range.
