Thoughts. Ramblings. Heavy-hipped. Mango-obsessed.

(poem): Yes...


Handsome smile
Lightning-white teeth

He'll shake your hand
with so much warmth
as if you've just saved
his life.

'You're special', he'll say
'Beautiful', he'll say
'I've never met anyone
quite like you'
.

He'll whisk you away
if you let him
to a place
where the sun sets
over a white dome,
where stars cavort
with the sea.

And you'll let him
oh, you'll let him
'cos no-one's ever paid you
that much attention,
twirled you around as much,
no-one's ever looked at you
that hard
or that long
or with such intensity


no-one's ever rubbed flattery
into your pale skin.

no-one's ever told you
just how good you are.


Yes, yes, his hands
are warm
So warm.
And, yes, he has
a handsome smile

But have you looked
into his eyes?
Really looked at them?


Yes. His hands are warm.
Yes. Handsome smile.

Yes.

But have you looked

into his eyes.
