Vernon Mooers writes

The Sea on Friday

At the sea the children splash in the water
and dead fish scatter the beach beside
puffins, mackerel and giant turtles
and there are predators in the water
sea snakes, sting rays, sharks, barracudas
and I’m afraid of the water
and the feral dogs on the track
through half-dead date palms
and old bones
