    The sun is rising
    It is dawn
    I awaken on the beach
    Sand is in my hair…on my clothes…on my face
    I slept here last night
    I taste the ocean in my mouth

    I see another figure on the beach
    His dark hair flowing around his shoulders
    Straight like wire..his moccasins filled with sand
    His bow and arrow over his shoulder
    He sits and stares at the ocean waves
    They crash the shore line he seems dazed

    we were together last night
    He shot arrows at the stars
    We fell down in drunken laughter
    We made love under the moonlit sky
    His brother followed us to the beach
    Tagging along feathers in his hair
    Wanting to be with us and around us

    Twang
    As we shot his arrows at the moon
    Twang as I screamed for him to poke it in the eye
    Mr. Moon is always staring at us from above
    I remember black russians and happy hour
    I remember his little brother
    Ducking behind sand dunes but always there
    Pest…little brother…pest

    walking back towards home
    we see little brother asleep on the beach
    Why is he still sleeping I ask….
    As we get closer, we see the arrow in his chest
    The tiny circle of blood
    The feathers around his head
    I thought we shot the moon last night

    Dang! Little brother got messed up!

    This scene was wild and free until tragedy stepped in.

    Great story-telling in this.
