Four Women on a Ptown Beach

Four Women on a Ptown Beach J. Dee Cochran Whatever is beneath a black bikini Pokes the listless world with sudden affection We are all women here, who suddenly say in unison, "There are not enough women here." And so, the sheet we pour our bodies across resembles perfectly the unfortunate bed linen we each have at home--memories of when we made a home with another woman. Now we are all singular in our laments, all single and staring out at the ocean. Giving into the temptation of swimming, we notice unusual stains left behind, reddish orange; as if the platonic intercourse set some of us to rusting. From behind stylish shades, we spy our horizon and make idle remarks on how we should all get out before our fingers start to prune.

Abstract

J. Dee Cochran Whatever is beneath a black bikini Pokes the listless world with sudden affection We are all women here, who suddenly say in unison, "There are not enough women here." And so, the sheet we pour our bodies across resembles perfectly the unfortunate bed linen we each have at home--memories of when we made a home with another woman. Now we are all singular in our laments, all single and staring out at the ocean. Giving into the temptation of swimming, we notice unusual stains left behind, reddish orange; as if the platonic intercourse set some of us to rusting. From behind stylish shades, we spy our horizon and make idle remarks on how we should all get out before our fingers start to prune. Cochran: Poetry 193
