Beachy Blues

"you're getting a whooped tail"
father barks to son
as i hold a mermaid's nail
spirit holding a ton

Birds cross paths
Along the shore
Another woman laughs
As waves righteously roar

Sky now dark
many eyes explore
camera goes spark
moment no more

Along spirits sail
Towards a setting sun
Out of the whale?
a question on the run

Andrew Neil Maternick's picture

My name is Andrew Neil Maternick. My beloved mother brought me into this life on a rainy day in August near the Rockies. One day my younger brother suggested I fill a notebook with poems; I followed his suggestion.
