JOHN HORVATH Jr
Black Dolphins Passing Alligator Point Beach

Had the sun been higher or the wind a slight more brisk I would not have sat still in the dunes watching girls attempt a modest tan on breasts. I saw the dolphins pass and realized how time has come to pass me by; how once much younger I might have cried and pointed their direction. Now an old man fearing detection, I sat still, burnt bright red. Red in the dunes along Alligator Point, I felt the young women blossom while sensing someone out here possibly observing their maturing gestures. Flaunt what you have: the wrinkles are coming; the boys will be old men burnt forever by too many summers.
