fate sealed

seals

what are those? asks a stranger
in the quiet on october dunes
watching seals bob and weave

his salt and pepper lips,
the glint of amber eyes
invade my solitude…..still

are they dangerous?

not as much as the sharks

i’m thinking of going for a swim, join me?
I watch as he peels off layers hiding
smooth…..dark……….skin

will you meet me for dinner?
he calls, diving into hungry waves

just desserts
