Revisiting Brighton Rock


Revisiting Brighton Rock

It was the wildest of dreams, our found independence. Ignorant arrogance.
Like pride. That fall. So unsuited to responsible views. We thought to display

our purpose, our youthful pretences, so dropping those restrictive defences.
We were a viral outbreak on coastal sands, and we ran free on those finest

of days. A youthful siege on refinement and calm. And all that month long
in the rebellious August heat, we lived our wildest independent dreams.




Found text in Scribner’s Magazine, January 1887 issue,
“Coastal Defences after the War of 1812”
