Lust by Number
One lonely shack by the shore of an unremembering sea.
Two lovers locked in the frantic embrace of the desperate.
Three days immersed in the depths of sin and escape.
Four men in a skiff, gold band gleaming on the leader.
Five minutes of pain, screams and shots.
Four men recede back over the horizon.
Three days of silence before a fisherman comes to spend a hard-earned weekend, soon spoiled.
Two desperate lovers carried away under sheets, leaving behind the life they pledged each other.
One shack, festooned with yellow tape, sitting lonely by the shore of an unremembering sea.
