Polly in Pantoum

As rivers walk across her faded smile The wind exhales the breath that blows her cloth Her hair received by sunlight, shells and scars Stretch out upon the streams that sing and slide The wind exhales the breath that blows her cloth Releasing pearls unto the waters palms Stretch out upon the streams that sing and slide French-kissed by fish before the moon arrives Releasing pearls unto the waters palms Her hair received by sunlight, shells and scars French-kissed by fish before the moon arrives As rivers walk across her faded smile
