Soon It Will Be Dark

SAND CASTLE

We liked the view
Here, close to shore.
You built walls
And windows
Open to sky.
The moat was
My idea.
Ringed with rocks,
Our castle
Built for two.
The tide is
Rising now.
Waves crash close,
Walls crumble.
The moat that
Kept us in,
Keeps others out.
There’s no rescue.
We liked the view
Here, on the edge,
Open to sky,
Ringed with rocks,
Our castle
Built for two.
