View of a Rollercoaster from the Evening

Waves ripped into the glass surf and broke on the yellow/orange beach. Cars passing, chained to the lines of lights hanging in streamers across the road from the lampposts running the length of the promenade on one side to the shops and flats on the other. The city broken off from the water, disintegrating into patches of colour like something mapped, like seen from above. New buildings, the rollercoaster billowing up from behind. Large palms, kids holding hands, families in windbreakers, the ladder like structure of the rollercoaster all faded. A day out. The light passing through.
