Lost in thought…perhaps across the Atlantic

???

I wait for the holiday crowd to clear the beach
before stepping onto the first wave.

Soon I am walking across the Atlantic
thinking about Spain,
checking for whales, waterspouts.
I feel the water holding up my shifting weight.
Tonight I will sleep on its rocking surface.

But for now I try to imagine what
this must look like to the fish below,
the bottoms of my feet appearing, disappearing.

    As for the Billy Collins… imagine what the poor fish would’ve thought had they seen me at the beach the other day when I lost my bathing suit. Poor fishies!!
