Globalization

I’m watching a woman in a bikini
In great shape with a swollen belly
Play with her puppy named Gatsby
A Hispanic family comes
The little girl dips her feet in
Splashing back and forth
Big ears I almost didn’t see
Hidden by curls in her dark fluffy hair
She says don’t get my trousers wet
Surprised to hear someone
Under fifty use that word
She must be foreign
But not a trace of accent
Then I see her father’s turban
Above his Lakers tee

(2014)
