Riff On A Walk On A Scottish Beach Poem by David McLansky


Proof of Life

The detritus and flotsam of the scouring sea
The roiling mountains of the collapsing scree;
Litters the oceans rolling towards me,
Splinters of wood, crushed cups of coffee.

Plastic bottles roll on the sand,
After the journey they finally land
They pile up as garbage on the once pure white strand
Archeological proof of the existence of man.
