Endurance

Written By: Avshalom Guissin - Jun• 03•10

The endless horizon which stops short,

unable to breach the fog

of this fairly ordinary sunset,

amongst the vile crowds

that flood this beach every weekend,

the cliché beach music that my sensitive

taste somehow manages to ignore

despite the urge to criticize,

and the flat warm beer in my cracking plastic cup

that threatens to spill unto the sand,

splashing my leg that is already sweating sticky,

all fade

as I stare at your parched lips

pronouncing my name.
