Tourist Attraction

colored chunks of glass on the shore

smooth from the waves undulations

pulled up from the ocean floor

gleaming like jewels in the sun

in what appears to be a pristine beach

but isn’t, it’s littered with trash

a picturesque setting with broken glass

marred by the reality of the incongruity

of the dumped glass’s original source

trash heap to attraction for tourists

who have no remorse
