Valladoliid And Beyond 1970 - Poem by Terry Collett

You can get off
for half hour
and look around
if you want
the coach driver said

what's this place?
Miriam said

it's Valladolid
he said

so we got off
and walked off around
and we found a cafeteria
and sat outside
and a camarerro
took our order

and we sat there
and Miriam said
isn't Spain good
I mean you read about it
and the brochures
but when you get here
it's quite something
isn't it?

yes I guess it is
although they mostly
show the best places
I guess even here
there are slums
and places you'd not
want to wander
too far in the dark

she raised an eyebrow
so? but most places
are out of this world

Pluto is out of this world
but don't mean
I'd like to go there
I said

you're just being awkward
she said

she crossed her legs
and sat looking
away from me

I liked her red hair
tight curled
and the way her boobs
kind of stuck out
in the tee shirt
she was wearing
and the red shorts

o I liked red
so intimate
and the way her leg
crossed over the other

it's a good sight
I said
plenty to see

she turned
and gazed at me
you like it?

sure good to look at
and better to be
about it makes the eyes
glad to be alive

glad you like it
she said
all this way we've come
and to see it up close

yes I like it up close
I said

she smiled
and I liked her smile
her eyes sparkled
like sunlight in water

and the camarero came out
with our order
and we sat drinking
our coffees
and nibbling the cakes

and she said
glad you like the view

I smiled
o I do
I said
I do.
