Two Poems By Emalisa Rose

playing naughty
  
gone are the 
day trippers
the lords of
manhattan
the frats and
the debutantes
the silver hair
gents with
their bleached
over blondes
sipping sex
at the tiki bar
  
it’s now you and
me ‘neath the
scarlet soliloquy
and i swirl in 
your sands, shed
off my skins, your
breakaway blues
your waves that
roll over me
  
naked and free
i dive in your sea
and we can play
naughty again. 
tossing my parasol
  
rain on the marquise
of monday, the bewilder
of blues ringing in with
the mood of the morning
  
i twirled twice in your
thunderstorm, tossing my
parasol, planting my feet
on the pipedream of spring.
