JUST ADD WATER V2

Along the beach’s neon cosmos, 

The eye is reaching to perfect,

With inner tubes and cosmo’s,

Summer girls, in retrospect;

    Waving human palms to make

    Life lines out of towels and pails,

    To tumble for the ocean’s sake,

    For these torches, for the sails;

And for one of you, my dream:

Not from here and not this light,

But, as it happened, just the same

As my adolescent night.
