Beach Walking

By Chrissa Pedersen

I’ve forgotten how,
To walk on the beach.
Finding that line
Where the sand is firm,
But not so hard it hurts my feet.
Sand—fresh washed by the sea.
“I agree,” I say to no one.
Permanence is an illusion.

  • Robert loves the number “3.” Everywhere he looks in town he can find the number “3”—in signs, on cars, and on storefronts.
  • Isaac wants to be a cowboy more than anything else in the world. Only trouble is—he lives in the middle of New York City.
  • “You can’t do that! It’s disgusting.”
