On holiday

your inner tube floats

slowly deflating

gently warmed

by the outstretched arms of a sun-soaked holiday

your generous smile glistens

you consider me home

and I am right there with you

your sopping-wet ginger curls

dipping bobbling slipping into a spill of sapphire

where robins egg meets sky

you are infinity

and I am beyond

happy

west of here

tonight

drums and rum

will linger

the call

impossible to resist

last night’s crew

sleepy-headed lions

stretching immaculately sculpted long sleek bodies

hearts beating

thirsts

being satiated

hunger

yearning to laugh and live

wild

free

all of us

becoming

ourselves

becoming

friends across the firelight

all of us

blissfully adrift in a Mai Tai mist

we dance waxy starboard decks

beneath a radiant blur of party light strings

lost

and found

in the sparkling

being
