People—The Beach Poems, Day Four

The Beach Poems, Day Four

At Waterville, the Gulf Shores,
AL, redneck waterpark, I saw

a woman’s entire ass
yesterday, except for the part

her bikini secreted out
of sight in the crack. I’m not

titillated (God, how I love
language!) cause it wasn’t

the kind of thing you want
to see. In fact, I hope this poem

acts like a simple mind sorbet.
I told my wife, who replied,

Someone should tell women that flag
bikinis are always a bad

idea, especially those
for lost causes and defeated

. My, my—what a man or
woman will use a body for.
