Milka was by the duck pond
we'd been to the cinema
to see an Elvis film
I’d bought us ice creams

and we were sitting there
getting some air
I thought my brothers
would be there

she said
they said they would
just to show me up
being with you

I watched her
as she spoke
her tongue licking
in between conversation

they just said that
to wind you up
I said
they've gone fishing

with your big brother
they always
do that to me
she said

get me wound up
that's brother for you
I said
the ducks swam

around the pond
there were geese
as well and other birds
pecking up bread

spread around
my mother almost
caught us
the other day

Milka said
that was close
I looked
at the ducks

you said your mother
would be out for ages
I said
I thought she would

Milka said
I remembered hearing
her mother
talking out

in the farmyard
to a farm hand
your mother's here
I recalled saying

to Milka as she lay
on her narrow
single bed
what O god

and she had thrown
on clothes
and cursing
under her breath

I put my jeans
back on
watching as her mother
chatted to the guy

get out
Milka said
go downstairs
make out

I’m in the loo
I just made it
as her mother
came in

the ducks swam around
I finished
my ice cream
as Milka licked away

her small tongue licking
her eyes gazing
at the swan
that had come down

large and white
swimming smooth
I kissed her neck
lips to flesh

warm and soft
and she giggled
and I loved the way
her bottom wiggled.
