Recurring headaches
from caffeine highs
nicotine cravings

in the smoky speeding crown
of evening’s crowded malls

and the big summer sun
and the ice blue pools
whose women strip
to a cloth up their ass cracks

and chat over rum
and Caribbean limes

…this is where the salt went!
…toward the heat of dissipation
and air cooled condos
way too cold

…and a few like me
grow old…

editors note: You can mind your salt, but that calendar creeps all the same. – mh clay
