ON TEN, Laurie Kolp

by Laurie Kolp

You can’t forget the nude one-
piece bathing suit worn by Bo Derek
running down the beach slow motion
accompanied by Boléro, 
a tight maillot exposing leg to curvy hip
           hip to sun-kissed shoulder 
           shoulder to wet, braided hair 
a beaded bottom swing, 
                                     flinging in hypnotic light, you look
at the total picture, eyes stilled 
by eyes an offshore breeze
awkwardly aware of cleavage-bearing 
bathing suit and you wonder how the hell
you’ll ever measure up.
