Alicante playas

What gets lost in translation

of playas

is

it is where mud meets the med

there is sand to be had

and chippings of plastic

dead food containers

sad flip flops

cigarette lighters

things other

that we would prefer

not to recognise

a place for old men to meet

discuss issues of their day

& the young flock to frolic

in the outflow from plush hotels

playas

when the sun don’t shine

it means

car park
