Yellow stained cuticles
and overstuffed bellies are evidence
of curried crab

and fried lobster
consumed with closest of friends
by the sea.

Later, hunched over
hotel sink and garbage pail,
we lay waste

to mangoes of
the East Indian variety, juicy
and surprisingly sweet.

Or, maybe not:
after all, we are sheltered
by mountain ranges,

overdosed on cholecalciferol,
caressed by sweet salty breezes
that dry sweat.
