Chrissy Hessing - 1 Poem

Discontent Sunbather

Waves whisper
to her wandering mind.
Her yellow bikini rests
on a hot pink towel
caked with sunscreen.
Eyes slit to sun,
relaxed on sand,
she peacefully dreams
until pink Sharpies
In N Out milkshakes
OPI purple nail polish
Toll House cookie dough
red roses
MacBook Pro laptops
Tiffany’s diamond rings
dance across her horizon.

She must have them now!
But she’s too far away.
Tiny grains tickle her fingers,
salty breeze whooshes,
sun rays offer calm,
here’s not good enough.
There’s not either.
So she picks up her towel
and leaves.
