Lake Michigan

Lake Michigan

Knee-high dune grasses
slice delicate skin
as I walk.
Droplets of blood
ooze.

My sneakers squeak
in singing sand
under the hot
noonday sun
as I climb
Mt. Baldy.

Over the
whitecaps of
Lake Michigan
l spy Chicago.

Blinding light
reflecting off dunes
and water
remind me to find
my sunglasses.

I fish them
from my back pocket
retrieving bro

                           ken frames.
