It Is Not The Sea Which Murmurs In A Shell

By: Colin James

                        Delmore, that's the third

                        scratch ticket

                        you have buried

                        in the sand.

                        The closest available

                        receptacle is thataway.

                        Leave only footprints

                        on your journey

                        while avoiding the crowds

                        sitting on their hands.

Colin James has a couple of chapbooks of poetry published. Dreams Of The Really Annoying, from Writing Knights Press, A Thoroughness Not Deprived of Absurdity, from Piski's Porch Press, and a book of poems, Resisting Probability, from Sagging Meniscus Press.
