To Grit

grit–like glitter

clings to things,

no matter how you wash–

its gripping power,

withstands shower–

spigot, tap, and faucet.

a trip to shore

insure’s the floor

of car is finely dusted,

with flecks &specks,

the beach effect,

is buff–not tan–and crusted

so when your Ford’s

an emery board

don’t curse, or whine or wail,

since pedicure

is easier

with file (in tow) for nails.
