Everyone Loves The Sea

October 29, 2012 at 7:16 pm (Dominic Alapat, Poetry)


I had two old beds;

their headboards

of blue sun mica

were the most beautiful

things in the world.


There’s World War II

over the yellow buildings;

you can see the fighter planes,

the pilots in their

helmets and goggles at night…


Broken, shabby houses…

run-down bars

animal people talk…


Naked men and women,

emaciated, speaking

some strange language

join us in the streets…


In the morning when I wake

I notice the sky has backed

deeper and deeper

into the sky…
