Reliving an OBX Vacation in Verse II

Day Two

you hop
we all hop
over Harry Potter
to the Chesapeake paranormal
Bay Bridge and Tunnel

two lanes
two lanes
incessant and blue—
the u turn to stop
an angle of pier
that hauls in this lottery ticket:

you’ve won
Virginia Beach and traffic
and go over
the Wright Brothers Bridge
—it’s five o’clock somewhere—

what would Jimmy Buffet do
drive through
the brew-thru

Coronas and coolers
Wing things and sun block
that Sonic and shake
the Cape Hatteras Seashore
blonde sand the sea oats a silvery light is arcing
on the Oregon Inlet

out to Chicamacomico
and further out to Kinnakeet
and outer beaches out to sandy sheets
(oh the upper deck
and ocean oh
the sound)
