On the esplanade
cliches stroll
exclaim and interject
greet platitudes
pose mechanically
for photos
buy picture postcards
with sound effects
of surging waves
and screeching seagulls
then write home
about a wonderful time
if you only you were here
to share the views
from our balcony
of the sea
where pronouns swim
or sunbathe on the sand.
