Appointment (for Lala, Kat and Bugsy)

The merienda is set for Friday
& already the heat of summer
is merciless & unkind
on kind souls:
Have the women come & gone?
Have the men retrieved their Roman whips?
The appointment promises a rekindling of desire:
But will the merriment be an all-time high?
Will sadness lurk behind the smile?
Will the chamomile taste bittersweet?
Will she glance this way or that?
Who’ll linger after the coffee break?
Will all be like ships passing in the sea?
The merienda is set for Friday –
But Fridays are ominous in March
when once an emperor came to grief.
O Exorcism that get shorter,
nights of troubled sleep that get longer!
