He Tries

Wicker-Chairs-Antigua
Oil on Canvas – William Plante

White wicker chairs overlook Antigua Bay
He slugs rum, she sips chardonnay
Music plays sweet and slow
Orange sphere dips low

She resists his charm
He insists, holds her in his arms
Smoldering kisses, slippery lies
Slithering and sliding

She does the dishes
He dries
