By foreshore brink
A curious think


The lakeside draught
Hurls icy stuff


Cold air swirls flair
To flush cold fare


We walk around
Chilly strides ground


Lovely flats here
Prompt cost most clear


Hot coffee sips
In a warm grip


Kingston foreshore
Now tells me more

trench town
I lay under the sun 
all that is done 
me watching dandelion 
spring up from coarse earth 
ginger beer is being poured 
while hints of curry 
arouses my senses 
alarming sounds of splashes 
camouflaged laughter 
dangling about 
thee shanty towns river banks 
are lined with baskets 
of raw coconuts and banana 
husk a warm breeze 
charmingly whispers my name 
I answer nice to meet 
you too mr. Kingston...
