Caitlin Scholl: Childhood Two

=================================== Fall '11 TOC

1.
Highways crisscross waterways
canals & estuaries towards the Atlantic
from Miami Beach to the greater metropolis

 

used to harbor boats and bloated bodies
men, women, dunked & sunk by who
eleven or so, he and the other kids

 

among mangroves, Cadillacs exploding overhead
a city boy grew up remembering alligators
those waters and some freedom

 

2.
Jazz always had a house
some exotic thing with big tits
fetish high together by the pool


screen door humid or sexy air
when dad was out, drums back lemonade
some foreign chick, all of knockers

 

hanging on the bottom rub
asked and though he wanted to
the boy said no

 

3.
Weekly gig with Miami and months
out fancy where things full of glamour
those Saturday nights


wouldn’t spend any together
shoot the moon, and just
kick a wink going, get laid
