Selfie In A Taxi

This is a short poem I wrote about a picture I took with my siblings on vacation. 20170314_153712.jpg


We piled into the back

Of the open-air taxi

The heat of the day

Beat into the metal roof


We sat side by side

You and you and me

Each of us held

A little day bag in our laps


Cover ups on

Ready to hit the sand

And Swim suits

Ready to get wet


On that little tropical island

Fresh off the boat

Who knows what day it was

We were on vacation


Each of us sitting

With our sun kissed skin

Smiled at the camera

For another selfie
