Impartial Sand


How democratic is a stretch of beach?

Yesterday, a respectable married couple
slept on the same spot
where a murderer had lain. Before that
a couple living in sin caught sun there.

Tomorrow, it may be a priest
or a poet, each enjoying the illusion
that this bit of ground
is theirs alone.

I would love to know what you thought about this piece. Please consider leaving a comment.
