Sensing that Perfect, Isolated Wave

For Chris Kelly

Surfing Playa de Muertos,
a broken strap two-hundred
yards out.

Maybe it was safer
in the Suzuki on the way
to the beach or crusin’
the mountain roads of

Costa Rica on an
Enduro dirt bike.

Maybe it was safer
in the rental car for
three-plus hours
traveling to

the Costa Rica-
Nicaragua border.

Perhaps it would have been
safer staying in Puerto Rico.

Surely, Tampa, Florida’s iworld.
