Bide

Tank top
Battle axe
Sunglasses
Stereo

Are the jeans cut at knees
Adding to the axe’s shine?

Thirty-nine hours to go

Sandals
Leg hair
Arm scars
Long shorts

Is the big backpack
A friend enough to defend?

Twenty-five hours of glow

Backpack
White scarf
Umbrella shade
Sitting down

Is the pole tall enough
To catch star rays and hold on?

Eleven hours lounged around

Coastline
Shore side
Hot night
Star light

In those pockets with some keys
Are there journals and a wallet?

Seven minutes until they make ground

Black mugs
Drink spilled
On sand
And refilled

Can the cup contain magma
And piping hot rain?

Three seconds left to fill it up
