“A poet can survive everything but a misprint.” — Oscar Wilde

Desolation Row

They’re almost gone, we’ve been
selling them all day, the
postcards with pictures
of bikini-clad girls holding beach balls,
the tall one leaning to one side
hanging onto the palm…

They’re so naughty it’s alluring, but that
painting in the background is
the key to understanding why you’ll need
passports to get there.
Stay till your skin turns brown,
but don’t stare.
