Sunset Hole

The sunset is unapproachable—
only for the wealthy. Those who own
expensive apartments,
high, west facing patios.
Those wealthy, who can
afford to fence off the bay,
it’s beach, it’s fish, from us—
the workers who keep
their gardens, who keep
their houses clean, who
keep their children from
drowning as they play
in the bay, our bay with
clean sand beaches,
our bay that used
to belong to us.

The sunset is unapproachable
unless you know where
to find the hole in the fence.
And you aren’t caught.
