Cemetery Lane Beach

The water was warning us,
but we ignored how easily
youth sinks,
while we believed in life
vest padded lies,
and the doggy paddle,
the best friend to a dead man’s float;
all of which proved we knew more
about skipping stones
than the names left stranded
on mossy gravestones.

editors note:

He floats best who sinks last. – mh clay
