On the Beach

Graham R. MacDermott

Thinking about Frank O’Hara
On the beach
And that dune buggy
I walk the surfs edge
At South Padre
Wind wild in my ear
Eyes down
On the sand to hunt
Shell, bottle, pod
And from behind
Unheard until the blare of horn
Is this how
Thoughts beyond the walk
I jump aside
Avoiding a poets death.
