Silent Movie

34 Silent Movie
Photograph and poem © Kristin Cleage

From the balcony

the beach is a silent movie.

The man riding a bike. The

girl walking with

wide steps. One lone deck

chair dragged out, close

to the waves. Dog on leash

trying to run at the

gulls, who rise and circle

coming down again further

on. The only sound track

waves  chasing

each other.
