' ' ' ' ' PHOTOGRAPH OF YOU IN MY HEAD


Sitting on the grass
scarlet flashing fingernails

rolling a joint
(all talk talk talk)

speech bubbles
emerging above your head

holding a glass
of champagne

between your toes.

A little red triangle
of panties every now & then

flashing diamante
in the sun.

Red flag
to a bull.

Your voice
somewhere hidden

behind the waterfall
of your hair.

Your voice
with always the promise

of a kiss
in it

whispering: “Come...
...come here! ”
