"October at the Beach" by Lola Haskins

October at the Beach
For Gamble Rogers, Gentleman

Angels' wings shift and turn on the tide,
Finally fill with sand.
The tourist from Canada swims
Off the shelf. Gamble sees
The red shoulders,
The churning arms. He dives.
They drown.
How can we know love but in the moment...
Gamble's stocking feet disappearing
Into the first wave

- Lola Haskins, 1991
