Excursion

Was it
one
two
three day outing?
He can't remember;
his thinning memory betrays him...

It, surely, was a group outing
- that photo proved it -
a photo he does not possess,
a photo he, certainly, had seen
a long time ago...

Summertime
in bathing suit
seated on a beach chair
perhaps, at a near by island
surrounded by
three, or four, or five girls...

Who were they?
Neighborhood friends?
Classmates?
But, what high school from?
For his life, he cannot conclude...

One was combing his hair
One, or two manicuring his extended fingers
The remaining
- knees deep in the sand -
pedicuring his shy toe nails;
that much, he remembers clearly...

Pose?
Staged photo shootout?
A game of awkward adolescent eroticisms?
Fading memory of a photo,
or, of the moment?...
