road-side walking

Be careful of your toes on this island. They come an inch from their lives, and inch from a tour bus’ tires. They turn all sorts of colours depending on the ground you tread on. Black on the black beach, red on the red beach. They burn in the hot afternoon sun, so much so that I’ve considered putting sunscreen on them. But I’ve never carried through when it’s the road-side walking that could get them.
