Lines in Sand

Lines in Sand

I drew a line with a stick in dry sand

The Wind erased it

So, another I traced in sand that was moist

The Tide effaced it

Placed stones, did I, in a row on the beach

Surging tides wiped ‘em out

To sea or buried them

And left broken dollars

As recompense

Sandman, Sand Man bring me a dream

But first reveal your silicon source—desert or sea?

Could it be, betimes, accidently,

You bag sea salt erroneously?

My eyes sure burn, occasionally

It seems my dreams fail to true

Rebates? Guarantees?

I can pay in sand dollar shards
