Island Beauty

Her face – the first thing you notice
angular, a radiant glow, flashing eyes,
glossy, plump, downward-turned lips –
perfectly arched.

She’s in her all-or-nothing – posture
that rings attention,
like a piece of resounding poetry demanding
immediate answers without hesitation

Oh yes. You may kill me – this chaos of life;
but when she offers that genuine grin
leaving me weak to unuttered words
she becomes my drug –
her smile.
