The Entertainer in Great Yarmouth


Sea – her as God.

Blue arms unfolding

transparent pages to

Sun and Moon who

read every motion.


Dayrise Sea

her aquarium brains

winding up The Pier,

as she rolls to Radio One –

‘Bang Bang’ and ‘Boom Clap.’


Afternoons bore away

relentless sandcastles.

Bored of promising mythic deliverance

Sea her: passively destroy, persuasively coo

‘To look, merely, is enough. Look.’


But we cry inside summer shelters

for bodies we barely knew.
