Shelley Beach


If I went to a beach called Shelley

and saw the stark raving mad surfing types

trying their arm at the sight of the ford motor

on the prize list.

I would be ashamed of the rights of the many

who want the motor but can’t

compete unless they learn to surf

and I wonder if it is about the uses

of the boards and not the rights of all to be able

to make them all go to hell in surfing parlance

and be regularly attired in black. It

should be the renderer of all things equal who uses it

and not the righting of boarding and parting.

I will be then and there not the one who isn’t but the one

who isn’t here at all.
