The Jaws of Life

Just when you think its safe to go back in the water,
Fin.
The shark circles,
And invites her friends.
They snap, they chomp, they taunt, they tease.
They succeed.
In what? You ask.
And they are gone.
And you see the beach, and it is beautiful.
And you will get there
before she returns with her vicious, hungry friends.
Before you are burned by the sun.
Before you forget they came.
Before you forgot the question.
And you will get there.
Bask.
And you get in the water again. Or drown.
