Untitled…Nonet/Reverse Nonet

Waking to many mosquito bites
Even this paradise is flawed
I sweat, at times profusely
Even the lizards laugh
At deet in my hand
But the ocean
Calls my name
For me
So I throw
Fate to strangers
Revel in sunshine
Dance with the iguanas
Eat mangos straight from the tree
Clap for the mermaids in the sea
And hide the frayed hem beneath my skirt
