#2,478 Tanned

Her teeth were brightened
beyond belief by that tan –
that tan – either sprayed or
paid-for-thickly in Magaluf
[other places are available
for sun-lovers] – Her age a
complete guess for us few
pale observers in that café
where we sat – her fangs a
fixed grin [of pearls] upon
her fag-kissing lips – pucks
drawing wrinkles in [scars
of worship across her skin
& revealed by her vest] – A
barista spilt a cappuccino –
her Pantone match – roast
beans refilled empty cups
