Default On Gulf Shores

breathing cold manufactured
air from the rattling box
beside sliding glass framing
leaden skies
the swaying blue-green gulf
and shifting alabama dunes

I dream of andalusia

you walk up from the strip of sand
a beer can minefield
still dripping
and draw the mildewed curtains

a strip of milky light splits the bed
where you lie
tan-lined, stoned and sleepy

gulls argue against your breathing
talk-show murmurs filtered
through egg-shell walls
a trailer poet
shouts his dull lament

our ravaged coast inside
force-five winds
this fleeting eye
a temporary truce allowed
by distance from familiar ground
and automatic battles

we drift away
tiny boats left untied
on white seas
your liquid smile
before sleep

I dream of andalusia
