[Left] Surfer's Memorial
Newcomb Hollow Beach,
Wellfleet, Massachusetts

Cold day on the New England coast. Rain and white water above the high tide line. The ocean coughs up strange objects of unknown origin: a green and white flip flop, a blue barrel, remnants of a commercial fishing net, a toy horse, a few feet of yellow nylon rope, wood of various sizes, and a Sherman Williams painter's cap. Empty beach parking lots mean all the tourists are down cape at the mall. Makeshift memorial stuck in the sand for an unknown surfer.

The rain blurs the words the way mascara runs with tears.
