Teresa 10

From the sea
hair tight
salt upon skin
she rose
a perfect ten

To catch a frisbee
that was thrown
just over the head
of a dog
that leapt in the air

and fur
falling into the dirt

we wait
the return

and the earth turns

so here's a secret
just in case you didn't know

If you've ever watched men
watching a ball game

you may observe
that men can be like dogs
attracted by objects
in motion

So now
Here I stand alone
on a beach
waiting for the throw
from a ten out of a score
of a possible nine

till my wet fur froze
and human voices wake us
from all we see or seem

happy simply to be
and to be here

wouldn't that be something?
