What shall I wear
tonight in Tangiers?
Miriam asked
as we sat
in the base camp bar

what have you
got to wear?
I asked

I've one dress
I didn't think
we'd go out anywhere
to need a dress

we neither
I said

she sipped her coke
why do I have
to wear a dress?
she said

wear what you want
I'm sure all the dames
haven't got dresses
I said

I gazed at her
in her red top
and white shorts
and sandals

it's all right for you
you can wear
what you like
she said
but we have
to wear dresses
in the clubs

wear the dress then
I said

o Benny I hate dresses
I'd rather wear
jeans or shorts
she said

who said
to wear a dress?

one of the other girls
said it was best
Miriam said

wear what you want
I said

she sighed
and got off
the bar stool

what will you wear?
she asked

I've some trousers
and my jacket
and a proper shirt
I guess
I said

if you're wearing
proper gear
so will I
she said
but before that
I'm going to the showers
and having a good clean up

can I come
do your back?
I asked

no men allowed
in the women's showers
she said

I said

yes it is
she replied

she sipped her drink
and went off
and walked away
and I watched her go
with her sexy sway.
