Girls stroll out across the sands,

Undressed to kill, the proprietary strut

Of thwarted brides surrounded by the glands

Of packaged love where sun abut


(Above horizons and reflected on the sea),

The double day exploding into windows,

Sailor Jerry blended with some orange tea

As a tardy bride and groom pose,


Having missed the matrimonial cliché,

But, silhouetted by the setting sun, wait

For the time lapse setting until they

Can document their darkened fate.
