naked in the sand 

on a beach 
one man's instinct 
is to build sandcastles

a passing beachcomber's 
impulse is to kick down 
the towers. 

why this disconnect 
between instinct to create 
and impulse to destroy? 

rain, waves, and tides 
will make both endeavors 

will leave both men 
naked in the sand. 

Poem (c)2007 by R. Burnett Baker
