THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Places I Have Heard the Ocean” by Faith Shearin: throat, shell, hold, blood, beach, bed, carries, current, cat, rise, fall, everyone

Rise

And fall

Abandoned

Shell of the bus

Hold on to the past

When everyone was here

Even the cat with his mouse

And the children still in bed

They carried some picnic at the beach

The ball floated downstream on the current*
