Sidney Hall, Jr.: "Something about the Wind"

There's something about the wind coming off
the ocean, the waves washing the rocks

that makes a person who is quickly annoyed
by cigarette smoke and men
putting nails into roofs

forgetful and unconcerned.

If you are easily disturbed
you need to get an ocean.

  1. Thank you, Mr. Hall. Beauty brought me peace. It slipped down my arms; it quieted me inside. My breathing even slowed. I need to get an ocean.
