Hanging Names

A thousand tags
swing like socks
on a backdoor line.
Clack against each other
in the wind, swaying
in cycles.
Souls cling
to painted signs,
the remains
of loved names.
With every gust
a spirit is lost.
Their lives
washed away with the sand
as waves rush across them.
As winds rush across them.
