Florida Key

by Camilla Jean Welsch

A leg looks better

with at least

a little tan,

and even better

with a pale band

where the sandal has been,

and a trace of sand

on the ankle.

The hair looks better

with the taste of salt,

whipped up by the breeze.

And the rest of the body

looks better with little on,

save something bright and colorful

to set the whole thing

off,

on a Florida Key.
