Beach Body


The radio speaks to me telling

Telling me to get my body beach ready

Ready for surf and sand and bikinis I suppose

Suppose I am insufficient already


But on my commute I begin to ponder

Ponder the needs of going to the shore

Shore ready body doesn’t make the list

List includes towel, sunscreen, money for the store


I complete my internal inventory

Inventory needs for a beach ready bod

Bod healthy and happy who can move through water and sand

Beach ready body is about mechanics not facade.
