Florida Honeymoon by Wanda Morrow Clevenger

a year later
we drove south
for a real honeymoon
a week’s worth
of ocean edge

we drank pina coladas
because of that Rupert Holmes song
walked in the surf
watched a
skinny gal dance
on top a bar
topless

we watched the
dolphin
killer whale
acrobatic water ski
stuff too

we took lots of
instamatics
to remember
the time—
honeymoom love
all that Rupert Holmes
forever love
