Death in a foreign land

Betty

Charge woman,

Through life, take it all away
Charge, man,

Pretty poet, write it down,
When was the last time you looked at a lover,
In the sand,

Swam with sting rays,
Over African boys asleep with pink men,

Charge woman,
Stagger drunk,

Through the cobbled streets,
Outside home,

Under the lights by the stoop,

Bring it home, that suitcase in the corner full of,
Yellowed memories,

And typewriters.

-short evocative poetry-
