Brighton Beach (NYC) ~ Beth Levin

I swim far out
to where a man sings an old Russian folk song
my skin like eyes and ears
senses the sky the water the wind
a wobbly seagull escorts me back
to my blanket in the sand

Beth Levin is a classical pianist in New York City. Beth says "Working on a poem is a chance for me to work with words, break out of a score and in to the spoken world for a little while.

Both evocative and humorous ("wobbly seagull"). It's wonderful.
