Beyond Mother of Pearl

Beyond cold shoulders, beyond Demerara sugar
And the first beer.

Beyond her earring lost
In a boite de nuit.

Beyond brogues and dry hands.
Beyond these tourists.

Beyond a dad begging, clean bathrooms,
A journalist who wears
Ladies undergarments.

Beyond morning glory
And Campari hangovers.
