Seaweed man

He was 14 years old
He carried seaweed over his shoulders
As he waded onto land

“Look at me,
I’m the Seaweed Man”

Some of the slimy green stuff
Began to slip
His mother
Packed it back around his shoulders

She evidently liked him
As the Seaweed Man

As I sat on the bench
Next to you
Facing the noisy drumming waves
A sudden change came over me

And I became
A Seaweed Man

Trying to frighten my sisters
Absorbed by the latest world news
Written in the sand

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
