At the shore

Standing the water's edge
scrunching toes digging in to gritty sand
grains scratching, itching
bringing my attention to unnoticed places

I dig deeper
at the absurd firmness
of countless grains of sand,
a million acrobats
balancing on one another's shoulders,
suspending me,
above what I don't know

The water rushes in to take its turn
enticing my acrobats
to abandon me, one by one

I feel them leave
as my feet sink down
lowering me,
toward what I don't know
