I love the idea of beach and sand
Not that it’s found everywhere, including no man’s land
Isn’t there enough suffering?
Though the process I truly detest
I watch the sadistic ritual with great interest

Yet, convention dictates bodily hair removal
Swatches of green rustle overhead
Conveying the messages of the recently dead
Upon waking we ask ‘where am I?’
you left one world for another, but which is the lie?
