We built:
vacation beach sand castles
monuments to the sky, walls to keep out evil.
We wrote:
garage band love songs with
perfect chords, smooth transitions and no chorus
We painted:
muted watercolors that ran lefttoright -exactly
instead of running off the page, ruined

and they are all gone
all those brief moments of clarity
single shafts of light
here and then, not.

washed away by the outgoing tide
and only we remember how it felt.
