Haiku #2 Betamax

A photo memory of walking on Dungeness beach a few years back inspires todays Haiku. Decay everywhere, boats, sheds, tracks and nets, nothing lasts, a whole industry destroyed by political and corporate greed.

The smell of the sea,
Torn nets hanging on rotten wood,
Like a Betamax.”
