by Theresa Spargo Neumann, New Zealand

Wind-blown, sprawling beaches 
strewn with driftwood interwoven with picnic wrappings
castoff containers  
and sharp shards of beer-bottle green glass
Discarded plastic bags
dancing amongst the waves
glistening with a jellyfish's allure 
for creatures of the sea and sky to absorb
Particles caught in the setting sun
streaking orange flames across the sky
on an unseasonably warm evening
beside a too-tepid sea
