Beams Upon Cherry

Breaths of sand beneath the surface
as the tide massages
oilspill dusks, laughter and froth
chaotic cohesion
history burned for warmth

Vulnerable aluminum domes the children crawl upon
as they reap bliss
and twentysomethings pretend knowledge
all aged influences an impediment to laughter
their freedom stifled by a nostalgic resentment

Am I?
relegated to the low end
