He discovered grains, definitely
an unlimited supply at the beach.
He brushed it from his feet
though it caught between toes
and around nails like a raspberry seed
between teeth, so he kept sanding.
Worried away Moro Bay, sunsets
birth, adolescence, graduation.
Kept trying to rid himself of the tiny
grains, an hourglass dropping time.
Unable to clear them all, he smoothed
the rough edges, like sandpaper.
