Swept

Gabriel Enriquez Machado watches

the sea pull

 his his steps deeper with bliss and

empathy for the untouched sands 

spared from an empires fire

for a short moment where he is at peace

Tranquil as the waves and cold climb

past his knees and past his heart

until his head sinks with his rustic 

European armor destined for the bed

Below with crabs and skeletons.
