It was late
Abela
was sozzled

had a job
getting her
in the lift

of the cheap
beach hotel
where we stayed

overseas
not far now
I told her

nearly there
let me walk
on my own

she told me
pushing me
to one side

in the short
passageway
I watched her

swaying walk
I can dance
she uttered

and began
to tiptoe
a dance move

moving round
and around
then collapsed

on the floor
her short skirt
showing all

help me up
don't stand there
reaching down

I lifted her
to her feet
holding her

up steady
time for bed
I told her

can't you wait?
she uttered
HE CAN'T WAIT

she bellowed
HEWANTS SEX
she bellowed

I shushed her
a finger
on her lips

be quiet
it's quite late
I told her

a few doors
opened up
a few heads

looked at us
what's the noise?
a guy asked

bleary eyed
Benedict
tell the guy

to fuck off
Abela said
it's ok

I told him
she's a bit
worse for drink

and moved her
in our room
and locked up

where are we?
she uttered
in our room

I replied
what room's that?
she quizzed me

hotel room
I replied
where's the loo?

want to pee
she uttered
I showed her

and shut the door
and waited by
then she sang

some Mozart
aria
then she puked

you ok?
I asked her
more Mozart

filled the room
of the loo
the the flush

of water
along side
the Mozart

she puked again
a tap ran
water splashed

then she sang
Bach arias
as she washed

you ok?
I asked her
she came out

and walked by
still singing
her short skirt

was tucked up
in her bright
pink panties

time for bed
I told her
can't you wait?

she replied
she began
to undress

unsteady
still singing
I watched her

can I help?
I asked her
if you like

she replied
no more Bach
I told her

I helped her
get undressed
then put her

in her short
pink nightie
and put her

into bed
she dozed off
and I slept

on the couch
with my coat
over me

not wanting
to disturb
her slumber

or get puked
on in bed
far away

church bells rang
and sea sounds
from the beach

she slept on
in the bed
we made love

quite lovely
in my head.
