the beach flats

The Beach Flats

Liquor stores
Little Cesar’s
Community food bank
America’s Best Value Inn

It’s been said that the streets haven’t been paved for over a century
I guess that’s what happens when you live below the East and the West
The middle just seems to fall flat

A tricycle wheels round the yard out front
Work boots dry on the windowsill
Sudsy shirts swirl on spin cycle
It’s time to walk the dog

I
Stamped and sealed in by
The San Lorenzo River
Soquel Avenue
C
East Cliff
Jumpy neighbors
And smiling city planners
E

The front steps is the best place to have that after work beer
But maybe I’ll take it in the back
Mmmmm, smell that?
A screen door slams shut

Sometimes you can hear the screaming laughs from the coaster
Other times you can hear the whir of choppers overhead

Maybe we can get them to hide below sea level
Haven’t you heard?
This is the happiest city in America
