Umbrella Candy on the Beach

2 07 2010

Lemon colored

Skittle patterned,

nylon niceties

pop up and open

out of the melting sand.


lie the lazys…

lest they receive an

unwanted cherry skin burn.

With their

candy apple smiles


shimmering chocolate tans,

perhaps they feel safe from

sun spots

as they sip their pina coladas.

I’d rather lie on my torn towel.
