In the Hotel Garden

Look.  There are the stones,  traversing the river.

You and I ran across them so many times,

Back and forth, exclaiming to the skies,

Then I’d  kiss you .

 

Now the stones are old and slippery.  There are no fishes .

I walk  along the  island  conch shell beach,

Sharp to the touch, my  soles bleed.   Blood  trickles  privately,

Red,  caressing my toes , gently  running over me.

 

True, I  never  kissed my dead  lover’s lips.

But look, there  is a  butterfly,  dancing

Over the stones , flying so  haphazardly,

Never looking back, waiting you watch me,

 

Step,  step,  step.
