station break


we cook and laugh and eat   eat

too much   laugh

until we cry   eat even more   go


to the beach   watch surfers and gulls   kids

making sand castles   so

sweet that kids still make sand


castles   swim and bask until the sun

sets   then flee the

chill   back to the apartment   to warmth   to


make merry   it isn't always like this   but

it is now   sated in every

way   replete in the afterglow of


sensation   cognizant of   but reluctant to

rejoin   already in progress   the days of our lives

A happy poem with an exultant effect! Isn't 'station break' a pause between the radio broadcasts? I like the way you present the poem as a 'break' from the normal day-to-day life.

All at Coo & Co very much enjoyed this piece, otp. Of course our mossops were super-pleased to see the word 'merry'. We like the detail of the sand castles and the final italicisation :>)
