I’m  older now

the fun has long been gone

ladies not interested anymore

no longer that tan muscled beach man

 when I did work

was paid under the table

or worked as a gigolo

the women down on vacation loved to play and pay

no security net


now work at a small Miami Beach motel

Cuban locals visit on weekends

I take care of the pool

put the mats on the lounges

Hey Mr.

I need another clean towel


cannot afford to rent a room

 I sleep and eat in a shoe box size pool side cabana

barbeque at night


watching the ocean and moon
