near San Juan

William F. DeVault

I like to watch your eyes and see

what the windows to your soul reveal

of what you are thinking and how you feel,

the night wind off the beach

across your bare skin.

the curtain waving ambivalently.

and your exquisite curves softly sheened

by sweat of many sources,

reflecting the voyeur moon,

sad to not be in arms' reach of you.
