Family Portrait: Day at the Beach

father floats 
on his back spouting
the surf into the curbed sky
his treasured trunks puffed with captured air

sister sinks
and they drag her by
the hair to the beach to kiss
her blue mouth into a borrowed flame

brother fends
for himself spurning
the ferris wheels turning to
mothsoft towels their lubricious machines

mother sails
for the horizon
the oblivious smack slips
off of the dizzy lip of the whirled
