Beach Bodies

At the beach
sifting thoughts
like sand
through toes
staring at bodies
that are not my own
admiring some
censuring others
we are a judgmental
hermit crabs
ready to ditch current shells
for ones more habitable
dipping toes in
complaining of cold
desiring the sea
in land-locked state
of mind
some have
no oar
some have dragon boat
some have wings
& some
are trees
some feel nothing
others everything
some, they feel complete
’cause waves
can never stay in place
