The black dress

stretched out

like saran wrap

over her mature

dark

brown

skin

 

The dress has large white flowers on it

 

And I love

the way

she talks

about Walcott

and politics

and the sexy tan

 

beaches of the Caribbean. I sit

at a gray

and black desk

in a white button-up

(with blue stripes)

 

writing poetry;

thinking about gambling

and nude women

 

This is the second of a series of poems by Leo Abbe.
