Wave Watching at People’s Beach: variation on a recurring dream

I’m watching waves

break high on the sand

break against the asphalt of the parking lot.

When we were kids the waves 

were contained. 

Weren’t tsunami-tall and wild like this.

But it doesn’t scare me anymore.

“This is the new normal,” I say

sizing up the outsized wave.
