She stepped from the ship

walking as if she owned it

tan from the island Sun

Funded by investments

yet near to tears.

They gazed, pondering

her identity.

What movie had she starred?

magazine cover did she shine?

long legs, little purse, Annie Hall like hat

underneath these clothes was a broken heart

her ship had sailed, he was aboard.

Taking her sunglasses off.

nodding to her driver

looking back one last time…

The Austin sped away.
