Audacity of the Innocent

By Colin James

The pool is full of tanned feet.
Refraction modified white
skin will still redden when differentiated.
Having invested in expensive sunglasses,
it’s easy to feign apathetic indifference
looking at whom not what.
A political Halloween
spotted leopard garb,
bikini thong sodomizations.
So happy not dating vases
occasionally off by a lot.
The drinks are expensive,
delivering bow-tied citrus tarts
smiling real pleasantly.
Not oblivious to this submissive,
psychologically molested tawdriness.
Colin James has a book of poems, Resisting Probability, from
Sagging Meniscus Press. He lives in Massachusetts.
