A Dog Chasing a Girl on the Beach


What you can see
What you cannot
A dog chasing a girl on the beach
blurred but clear
clear but not real

What is obscured?
What gnaws from within?
What is hunger that does not eat?
What is breaking bone?

Think for a moment.
What if the dog is not a dog
but hunger

What if the girl is not running with the dog
but tempting that beast
hoping that he will catch her
unsaid – that he is death

There is no beach
there is no horizon
there is no water
there is no sand
there is no sky
there are no reflections

There is only a blur
a dog chasing a girl
a blur
A dog running
a blur
