For Babs

Timbukto
Take it
It may belong to you
It may lack
Some black
Or cool
Saharan dreams
Cassatas
Icy-veined carrara marble
Neopolitan ice creams
Where its warm
Not hot
This is not
Its just hard
As Kimberly
Trying hard not to melt
In that heat
Pretending to be
The human green belt
And twinkling
With a bad wink
A slit-eyed nazi squint
And a terrible stink
Diamond
Damned
Blue or pink
Icy
Some cold heart!
Neither thine
Or mine
That awful mine
Harsh and stiff
A straight narrative line
Taught
So taughtÖ it will snap
And me
Iím superman
Or super-she
But I think
Iím less black
And less pink
