A Perfect Match In Tahiti.


A Pefect Match In Tahiti.

Flip-flops lie

skewed across

a nearby dune,
three jumbo

margarita tumblers

drained dry

reflect the steaming

tropics shimmering glare.


My beach buzz

mellows the roar

of the waves

and enhances the topless

ladies passing my

niche in the sun.


I become an

offering burnt,
prostrate I worship

my winter-free sun.
then snooze on

a green striped

cabana chair.
gulls peck through

my pretzel bag

scattering salted

bends of bread.

The shade of

the umbrella

lies just east,
of any hope of

shadowing my

noon dreams.


I will rise later

stiff as a match

whose head

has flared

from red to smouldering

and stagger back

to a cool shower

that only dampens the burn



But Aloe Vera

grows outside my door,
and bleeds clear gel

to heal my indiscretions.
