Photo Essay: Sanding ~ The Peninsula

The peninsula
He walked along the peninsula
Seas of cobalt blue to either side
His only burden
Which sea to swim in

The privilege of this state of being
Never occurred to him
Nor the poverty
Which had elevated him

The poverty of those
Who could never walk along a peninsula
Seas of cobalt blue to either side
Without a care in the world

When I reminded him of this debt
He casually shrugged
“I did not make them poor”
And dove into the South sea
