long sunday. full car. smoking bridge. detour for miles. splintered steps and peeling paint. white sand, blankets of shells. cold waves, dissolving clouds. seagulls screaming, kelsey’s laughing. sand in eyelashes, rocks at the bottom of a baby pool. kisses laced with salt and something sweeter. naps in cars, naps in tents. tattooed boys and sunburned girls. free cookies and a speeding car. mommy’s dancing and everyone laughs. family shower and there’s not enough towels.
