Stormy Weather

 

Azure sky

no cloud

 

teacup horizon.

 

Lifeguard flags

tourists crisp into

 

pork  crackling.

 

In the shallows

dark shark

 

circles

 

gulps

iridescent

 

fish.

 

Time unfurls;

sandpaper,

 

possibility.

 

Later, rain:

drumming

 

sheets of it.

 

Palms tremble

& the birds

 

flume: ruffled.

 

Traffic slushes,

goose pimples

 

climb on

sunburnt skin

 

fruit tumbles,

unripe mango,

 

buttered orange

bursts

 

rose doves

scavenge:

 

monkey slinks

 

the line

of fence,

 

tail raised

talisman,

 

skimming.
