or wealth to have accumulated
a travel poster, a photo spread,
at every turn of a corner,
or shift of the eyes.
The cheap fun of a beach boutique,
a funky facade, a cover band,
margaritas and deep fried shrimp
invite a reversion to type.
The credence of a limbic sunrise
subdues analysis, heed.
Someone's vagrant cologne,
sandalwood, jasmine, and lime,
rides the pennant-bright air.
A gust of colorful wind-tumbled litter,
scrunched jagged orbs
and skittish fragments,
ramble by like a family on vacation.
