later, they planted their feet
in water.
she turned to him, and said “i won’t run far”

he lobbed a coconut into her hair
like a baby monitor.

the sun set and put the ocean on fire.

he held a coconut to his mouth
hoping it was god’s ear.

at a great distance,
somewhere something is crying.

it is most likely a seagull.

‘marilyn,’ he told the coconut,
‘tonight there will be bingo.
promptly at 7.’
