Murat Nemet-Nejat's Page Poetry Pages in English

Left foot,
Behind the ankle
You shy
Icon.

But I know
The shades
Of whip marks
On your back.
You smeared
Rouge
On your cheeks.
I smeared
Rouge
On your ass.

In that motel
In Jamaica
A converted
Old
Plantation.

           Murat Nemet-Nejat
           Hanging Loose, 1988
