Polka Dot Bikini - Poem by Consuelo Roland
On a beach in the land of sugar cane,
Wore a purple
Polka dot bikini
And eyed the sea
Like a matador might eye a bull.
On a beach in the land of sangomas,
Ran to the ocean's edge,
Long hair burning,
Blowing windward and wayward
In the pure blue sunshine.
On a beach in the land of ijuba beer,
The boys dived deeper,
Under the biggest waves
Never taking their eyes off her.
On a beach in Zululand,
A girl in a polka dot bikini
Wringing water from red hair,
The air around her aflame
With something I wanted.
