Three-plus champagnes-anything can-do girl,
anywhere-go preferably-Katmandu girl.
balanced-on-the-very-edge-of seeing girl.
Wonderful-from-the beginning girl,
So-shy-her-confidence-is overwhelming girl,
she-keeps-her-captains-firmly-at their-helms-ing girl.
Love at her heels, how does she think what she knows she feels?
Glides like an image one flower ahead of sorrow,
floating through sun-mist to yesterday’s tomorrow.
Through the moving shadows of this world’s blind-man’s buff
she has cared and been cared for (but not loved-too-much enough).
In her mind what pleasures lead her from A to Z?
In her heart what treasures are silenced by her head?
carrying through Customs (for the fun of it),
a bucket of water with the sun in it.
