Instructions for the first time you go to the beach...

Before you get to the sand
take your shoes off
then go in
dig your toes down
the core
massage the arch
with the tiny pieces
of rock
walk to the shore
let the water come to you
play hard to get
extend foreplay until desire
seethes
then let it catch you
embrace your legs
cool you down
Stay standing there
Don’t move
Let your feet sink in
be swallowed by the power of nature
be strong
stand still
the wave will crash on you
again and again
will try to push you down
will beg to kiss your lips
Then you should obey the ocean
and give in.
