in Latin the verb to conflate – to blow together
a boat fashioned from a debris bag is hoisted between two pink metal parasols.
kayak paddles flail haphazardly from the jury-rigged ropes.
a phosphorescent beach tarp is pinned down by sandbags and lounge chairs on the city plaza.
driveway markers become fishing rods with streamers flying.
