Genie in the Bottle 2
[by S. David] [art by Ilona Van Hoek]

A visit to the beach
Holiday abroad
The Mediterranean
There is no
There is synchronicity
A walk down to
The sea and at my feet
A sealed old bottle
Of course who else
But me a tired man
Who understands
What I can set free
The pyramids
Ruined temples
On mountain sides
And under the sand
I know what this
Bottle is and I
Wonder I pick it up
Should I the burden
Is placed on me
I return with it
To my rented villa
Bring out to the patio
A full bottle of
Whisky and
Pop both corks
