Jersey Shore

On my list of things to do
was to visit Jersey Shore

made famous from movies
and T.V. like so many sites,

a unique place with boardwalks
and a roller coaster, now all tossed in the sea

scattered remnants of how it used to be
all that is left are photographs and memories.

Some entrepreneurs will gather the junk
sell it for scrap while others will make it art

like pendants and other memorabilia
to sell to those who knew the place

treasure hunters of all sorts will comb
through the debris for something to salvage

in memory of a place where romance bloomed,
hearts were broken, and luxury loomed

now washed away by an Atlantic surge
brought ashore by hurricane Sandy.

The dream to rebuild is paramount
turning upright all that is upside down.
