Vieques, May 2015

Glass Beach

The glass on Glass Beach lays cool on the tongue
Of Isabel Segunda, scattered west from Ferry Point
Past the foot of Calle Muñoz Rivera
Where two flagging backpackers make themselves
At home in the shade of the pastel pavilion
Flaking in the heat of the morning sun
Soothing sounds of foreign words
Jagged notes bitten back by a sea at peace
With a combative shore
Content to usher us along to hush music
Playing beveled green beneath our feet.
