Manly beach blues

I‘ve never been

to Manly beach — and

I suppose you’ll not be returning there

this time around.

But 

please do me 

a favor, you 

and that friend of ours

mountain man: go 

to some sandy place

(I think you’ll have no trouble finding them

in that island), and

look at the water

(what colors do you see — blue, green, what?)

and 

breath in, deep 

breath,

before bathing yourselves 

in all that life.
