Dream # 18724To David Matthews's previous piece
Dream # 18726

in a surprise this tiny oriental girl kisses me
pressing her open round inquisitive mouth softly against mine
with the imperative osculation no man can refuse
but she's too young she's too young too young

i see her from the bus 
stopped by the side of the road 
seated on her parked scooter
i get off
we walk to the lakeside park
she sits underneath a tree facing the water
i lay my head in her lap and
blah blah blah blather
while she twines my filigree affectionately

the mama-san reads me the riot act
