strawberry dress

by camilla jean welsch

will you marry me there,
in my strawberry dress?

you can wear shorts,
and whatever else…

and I can wear
some kind of good gold shoes.

yes… rather,
we can go shoeless…

the air will taste of lemon zest,
paired with the scent of salt, which lingers
from the low-ebbing tide.
