Jan 6
I saw you across the ocean
I could smell the coconut in your hair

children played hide and seek
around and within the trees

the old men were gathered on the shore
and the women laughed at the men

I looked at your ankles brown with Sun
and felt a little embarrassed

soon the envelope of space and time closed
and I waved you goodbye.
