Omaha and Portmarnock Beaches

Two beaches in one year,
two countries.

My dad survived one
a long time ago,
we scattered her from the other

Havoc and desecration on the first
still remembered,
hopeless desolation on the second

Common loss washes
both places,
lingering loss, penetrating loss.

Two beaches in one year,
two countries.
