Saint-Malo in May

So hand in hand we walk the promenade
A tepid sun hangs in a cloudless sky
It's warm here in this little space we've made
But colder for the people going by.

The seaside here in early season's May:
The toilets locked, the walls deserted too
The car parks empty, who would want to pay?
The town wants tourists; me, I just want you.

I steal a glance, I see you, fierce and strong
Curious, happy, avid eyes that shine
I brush your palm, admire your body’s form
So restless, fickle, dangerous, risky .. mine.

So many years we've patterned our affaire
Hilarity, stupidity, it's true.
You’d think by now I’d know you, be aware
Yet every second you seem someone new.

We wonder if perhaps we’ll get a snack
The shops are shut, the tide is out, it's no big deal
I spread your fingers with my own, you squeeze me back
If we had time and space I'd make it real.
