Out Past the Breakers

when you look
inside the tides
what do you see?

mural of a boy swimming with a sea turtle
Though the V-wall at Nambucca Heads is mostly awash with selfie-seekers, dog-walkers, and the rods of local fishing peoples — there are times when you can wander that concrete path barefoot and be swept away. Out over the holiday-painted rocks, past the breakers — into distant headlands and the incoming tide.
