pathetic beach fallacy


what is the word for
when the sea is a grey green sheet
breaking in resonant waves
and the sky hasn’t yet started
and the dog is in the shallow pool
prancing amongst the weed,
and this early becomes the whole world

or more specifically,
how this
hurries on
to enchant
Channel swimmers
Central Park power walkers
saffron monks on the Ganges’ shore
trappers come down from
the snow line
and stay a moment
would-be jumpers
high over the Bay
