.walk over.

to walk across the shingle bank

at low tide is possible

watch them

the current is strong

screaming at the cold


near the private bits

the young go first breaking the air with hints

and sharper cracks urging brothers on

elders have sticks, hold hands, help

each other

cross safely

their dogs leap over with only the sound of water

at low tide only

newport sands
