Sad Day For the Beach

They stood apart
on the beach that once connected them
The place where they fell in love
the sunglasses were discarded
because they were broken
like their relationship

Others kept their distance
sensing their need for privacy
as they dissolved their nest
divvying up their material things
the argument about their children began
a sad day for the beach
