A Bungalow on Mazatlan

She knows to steal
A glance as she
Walks by a mirror
She'll cross
Her legs
In polite company
And kiss you
Goodnight
In the morning
She'll quote
You Bob Dylan
While
Strumming
Paul Simon
She'll eat
From your fingers
While
Putting on clothes
Naked at sunset
Awash in the waves
She'll whisper goodbye
After saying hello
