Swimming Alone at Feeding Time

Liner Notes: 

Navigate away. Lose everything. Again.
I'm too tired to write more

Mon: adding a bite more Wink I write directly into this form. No paper, no thinking, but it's after bedtime, and I'm tired. It's finished for now

Part of the story behind the story: We were at the beach at sunset. There were a ton of people with cameras out, including professional photographers. I was hot, so I went in the water.

Lyrics: 

He splashes in the evening breakers
Churning the water as he kicks and swims
Like an hors d'oeurve with the diners
Hungrily encircling him

She crouches in the sand at sunset
Sweeping the ocean with her camera lens
Like a searchlight in the twilight
Scanning the waves for fins

Swimming alone at feeding time
He sees her waving,
thinks she's interested in him
As he screams, she clicks and laughs
She wants a better photograph
As he screams, she clicks and laughs
She wants a better photograph

The evening clouds are echoed in the water
Crimson billows
Thrashing
Splashing
Down he goes

What a dark ending to the story! Wow. Good and concisely powerful lyric.
