The Tide’s Come In

The old house boarded up. It’s coming down to make way for a new sea view hotel. We thought ourselves witty when we named it Château de Sable, sand castle. Near the beach, built on sand.

But you shouldn’t build on sand, because it shifts and sand castles always get washed away by the sea.

The new build will be delayed though. When they find the bodies. It was lazy to bury them there when we were so close to the outgoing tide, but then again sand is so easy to work with when you have so much to bury.
