Stirring : A Literary Collection

Jennifer Poteet


We only posed for that picture
to see if the camera worked.
All smiles, you and I
embraced under the flash
just as we slipped away.

There was a drink
called Stormy Weather.
Its base was ginger beer and rum.
The sticky sweet
never crept into the room we shared:
all rattan and light.

The ocean sprayed
its pink debris upon each hidden cove.
You and I were freezing, remember?
On this island one very cold November.
