Black. Blue.

Black. White.

Flashing blue.  
Orange. Red.  

"Fight!" 

Aggression. 
A smile. 

The future here is declared through  
the slow waving hand of a child. 

“Weather's nice”—  

Silver hair shivering at a shop window, 
newly-replaced. 

Mouth-mottled paving. 
Footsteps  
hand-in-hand— 

A crackle of voice received— 
“Over”. 

Door slam. 

Inextricable, 
indeterminable sound  
avoids  separation.  

Approaching tide on sand.
