my mother told this story of the white girl in the library

18 June 2017

so my mother told this story of the white girl in the library
making eyes feet up shoes off
on the table oh god
making eyes long lash tilt down
at a stranger

transgress in the tropics: look for love
know the rules: there’s no words for it only
reflex contractions in the eye muscles

now some dēsī dandy comes
put his body on a chair
making eyes
put his hands on her body
tickling toes
haan? what she does?
she jumps up
keep your hands off my feet
and? he jumps up
keep your gōrī feet off the damn table
take me home she bellyaches
bellyaches

the ravages of space: alien
like a vision of the moon
from the moon
