we're so ocean weary -
salt jeweled hair,
no anchors to plant.

i'll be plucking sand
from between my toes
for weeks.

we roll the windows down
in our cars and homes
to let the neighbors in,
to let the smoke out.

and by the way our
shoes slap the asphalt,
humidity stalling sore ankles,
you'd think we cause heart attacks.

but we'll never tell you
we're running from ourselves.
i'm never home, and i love that 
the beach is beautiful at night
cape cod is beautiful, except for some of the people
but i'm happy

This has the bliss and euphoria of youth, coated beautifully in the fog of a nostalgia for carefree, lawless days, which wraps everything up perfectly.
It's wistful, impactful, and overall memorable. Congratulations (late, but still!) on your well-deserved DD!! This was a love, for me. :love:
