Spooktastic Extravaganza – Low Tide

Low Tide

The moon waxes,

tugging at the beach

drowning tendrils of seaweed

salt the air with their dying.

Purple mussels lie rotting

too late for rescue

fought for by indiscriminate gulls,

while once-bright starfish

fade into death.

But the smell,

Oh, that smell

Abandoning the beach

the ocean leaves behind

sweet-scented memory

as you do, in my bed

brine and semen and

too-rich life.

Laying with you

the room fills with the sea

lingering on the sheets

on my skin

a reminder of your absence.

And when I walk the beach

I smell you

and me

together
