Red lips and some Betel leaves

Some inane coffee happened somewhere
On some fancy street
Where a poodle came for a walk,
Amidst someone's peroxide hair

Stop your chit chat..his smoke said
let's touch..lazy eyes Morse coded

In the slow lap of water
Into the holy land
A dingy boat..and loads of stars
Holy schmuck!!
they touched and touched and touched
Some Betel leaves and red lips after

They jumped..their boats
Into some kind of togetherness
Conversation..you r so horribly sexy!

The beauty of your poetry lies in it's simplicity. Simple, yet so deep. Only you can write like this Maitreyee.
