The sea reshapes the sand reshapes the sea,
your lung inhales a mist inhales your lung.
Moving forward, forward moving,
follow you, you follow.
Our hands reform the beach reform our hands,
a grain’s movement a movement grains.
The breeze passes an ear passes the breeze,
a body moves, the past moves a body.
The air meets our skin meets the air,
the sea breaks the shore, the shore breaks the sea.
Forward moving, moving forward,
you follow, follow you.
My hand skims, a stone skims my hand,
the waters dip below, you dip below, the waters,
your eye takes, the scene takes your eye.
