Sea Hawk










Sea Hawk
- brian mendonca

Fish from the sea
'Cast the net on the other side'
Ramponkars or mechanized boats
the mackerals taste the same.
Yamaha outboard motors
Fishermen beach the Sea Hawk
Young boys play beach football.
'Beautiful legs' runs for a frisbee
Between the hillocks
a lone kite flies.
Raucous seagulls
'Emirates' on a T-shirt
Fish curry rice at 5.30 pm
Madd up the coconut tree.
A lone young woman
-her bare white back exposed -
Reads a novel
gazing into the sunset.
