A photograph of two seagulls in flight against a deep blue sky

Venice Beach, April 26, 1990

1,

He throws his
muscle onto
the beach
each swaggering
step a flex in

time.

As the
bodybuilder
struts to
shore

a seagull

crosses
the sky

she must
fly

2.

His abs and thighs
memories of flesh
from no specific
man from bodies
that no longer
exist–

now he stretches.
