Gemma Garcia | Cancun ain’t Hudson Bay

Walking in the sun covered face shining through sand under skin / left under / rusting / a green turned bridge for a tear open / mist turned into rain / Caribbean hand crafting now heat of the moment for a distance / traveled across / railways / walking paths/ fields of piercing lights / into the pier at the end of the sun city lights reflected on the speakers shutting down a line dying announcement of the next ferry departure
