Deja vu

Studio E

Now the beach is deserted
save for a key
unlocking an underwater
man cave
where mermaids sing Stevie Nicks
on the radio.

Elsewhere, a wife
flexes her muscles behind a glass door, watching a man record
an invitation to restore
what once was
and is still waiting
on the carpet of a third floor
bedroom.
