Half way home.
Half way between high noon and sunset.
Half way between the listening and daydreaming.
That's when we did it.
Banged a 90 degree turn off the face of the earth and drove straight to the Ocean.
And without another word,
we walked straight out into the wild green sea,
clothes billowing up around us like abandoned parachutes,
cheap lighters and bubblegum wrappers floating upward,
confetti in reverse.
Deeper and Deeper and Deeper...
Until we were
halfway between the sand and eternity...
The waves were plump and
cotton sheets blowing on the line...
and the water was Margarita Green...
and frothed in salt.
I could see my toes...
and swirls of sand dancing with the current.
And for just a moment,
I thought that I had never seen life any clearer.
Or been more free.....
