Summer Lovin' - Poem by Fergus Anthony
Rubbing margarine into their skin
To catch the sun, middle-aged women,
Dressed in denim shorts and sensible
Bras, sit like old-time movie stars
On the beach at Cannes, surprised
By an unexpected camera flash.
Out of the water, a girl,
Shameless in a green bikini,
Wrings the lake out of her hair.
We see that she can feel our eyes,
Piling our ambition on her skin,
It’s in her perfect posture as she walks
Along the pier, across the sand
Past the burning women while we
Sizzle like bangers at the water’s edge.
