Jasmine

Off white patches decorate the weathered orange canoe
pointing across the river at a slightly tilted & raised

dock resting under the young willow. A man & woman
row by abandoned of expression passing a covered spotty

lime green dingy held one extra step from the bank by a
series of bamboo ‘bumper’ stakes reaching deep into mud

and air. A woman walks past with one hand holding the
leash of a Deutshound & in the other the hand of a little

girl. Resting on the woman’s back is a bag overflowing with
jasmine in such abundance that she instantly transforms

into a living Diego Riviera portrait flowing with the scent
and sexuality that belied the masters greatest achievements.
