Seashore Stories

When I was a kid, Aunt Marion
read me seashore stories
about the giant whale that swallowed Jonah,
and the scary Moby Dick tale.
We watched horror movies
on her Sony Trinitron
as the sharks circled us in salty waters

and the pirate ships rolled in.

I’m a middle-aged writer from Santa Barbara. I have a poetry book available at Amazon called, Awkward Grace.  Visit me at Crowonthewire_Poetry @ instagram or my blog @
