children and their empty hands

children and their empty hands
dark
ruffling on curtains
board banana earplugs
no one seems sure where
but its time

spanish spanish spanish
stop then bus or is it bus then stop
shuffling in flips flops
through streets lawn with waste
scooping with toes
the thin cord that holds it all in place
dry raspy throat
warm spit

neon lights shaping shadows
laying crumbled in door ways
cardboard and rags
cardboard and rags
the puppets strings
a mess atop a mess
atop a mess

while eggs get chewed into beans
which crunch down through rice
and how sweet the coffee of black tar

light and day
fruit beans yuca and hay
carried by horse and hand
as underneath and above
the heat sucks at pores

blown by dust
that sweeps down road
behind trucks laden with mothers
children and their empty hands
bags of salt rice bananas yeast
bread ice cookies cocoa
the flesh of meat

step by step by step
dust lifts and hangs
circling
wisps blown
mouths covered
babies faces shielded by brave mothers

piglets scutter pause break turn and flee
as cocks chase hens
chase geese
chase time

wrapping tightly
knots around poles
where hammocks dip to the floor
and toes scrape softly in rhythm
back and forth
fingertips and twisted heads

where Chele and his cheeks bulge
as sweet juice rushes through a torn corner
raw plastic in mouth
mango mango mango

the sun now white
searing in rays
pounds pounds pounds the sand

feet skip
hop skip and flip
melting wax
balling hairs
the familiar dance
leash plugs zinc

and the first dive
deep
cool
salty
safe

flushing the weight
as it slowly begins to fade
with stroke after stroke
dive after dive
hips push toes
which flex on tail
flushing and flushing

deep the tide runs
scraping sand and shell
pulling water

finally a moment
the water
sucks sucks sucks
the wind blows up
into eyes ears n’ hair

chin to board
arms cycle through blue water
and the white of time begins to seizure
skipping once
twice

and then life
stands tall
deep and handsome
and by heart
I remember

Sand bubbles

Sand bubbles
These are patterns left on the sand by crabs. From the moment I saw them for first time I kept on wondering what it is. Well, I did a little google research and will share the little information I found….

They are Sand bubbler crabs that live on sandy beaches in the tropical Indo-Pacific.
These small crabs live in burrows in the sand, where they remain during high tide. When the tide is out, they emerge on to the surface of the sand, and scour the sand for food, forming it into inflated pellets, which cover the sand. The balls are actually the left overs after feeding.
The crabs emerge as soon as the tide recedes. You can almost tell how long the tide has been out by the patterns of their sand balls. The more intricate the pattern of sand balls, the longer the tide has been out.
