    She smiles red lipstick
    Man looks over his shoulder
    Curves on top of curves

    Her shaven black beard
    Slim thighs cradling my stare
    No milk in the crib

    You, you beautiful
    Maganda Ka, maganda
    Dandruff on my lap

    Stroking her brown hair
    Pink, wet tongue licking my ear
    Her soft, wagging tail

    Scrambled eggs and toast
    The yellow drips into brown
    Falling straight, a plane
