Tel Aviv Shoreline
by P. David Hornik (January 2015)
The shadows on the shore
recover an innocence.
Two are tossing a ball.
Soon they’ll disappear into the dark
and become something else—
forms at the outskirts of frolic,
stalkers of themselves.
But at sunset
they seem for a moment almost
admissible into innocence
while the sun shatters
