Jeremiah Walton- A Poem

Hampton, Love Me Back

Under the dock
untouched by
morning light
morning dew
down a sleeping spider's leg
The pubic hairs
of the beach
are infested
with crabs.
Teenagers yawn
with the gulls
and wake
with sand
under nails
and fire
on their breath
warm nugs
of weed
into beach air
I love the smell
of the ocean.
