A Poem by Neville Pettitt

E.U.

 

 

Somewhere between passport control

And Duty Free

There is a door through which anyone can disappear

Go check it out…

 

Somewhere between Hotel Paloma

And the Supermarket Zora

Is a balcony with your name on

Get over it….

 

Somewhere between my third Rakia

And your second port and lemonade

Is a another double daiquiri

Slow down a bit…

 

Somewhere between your knee

And your navel

Is a flake of my DNA

Get rid of it….

 

Somewhere between that

Unhealed bruise and your mosquito bite

Is an area of outstanding natural beauty

Look after it…

 

Somewhere between the Black Sea

And the Starra Planina Mountain range

There is a place where you can….

My word for the dotted lines in the last verse ...'be'. I love your 'somewhere between's'. It reminds me of the theory that there is 'time between' the time that we perceive, ie something else going on in life. But, to me, your poem is about appreciating the moments while we rush about our busy lives. I think the travel metaphor is very apt. Nicely done.

Travel to refresh, meet and greet, stay and play, blink and wink, sail and trail, slip and slide...
You open up our eyes to possibilities out of our confinements and the many things we are missing. Great you.

You are welcome. Enjoy your travels.
Penultimate stanza needs some beating! What a journey. There's just a little hint of naughtiness mixed with an urge to rove - add to that a few 'wets', panorama and anatomical politics!! What a mind you have.. am laughing, no, giggling.. thanks for that, NP!

I've not had the finances to do any international travel, so your poem does me the favor of taking me away on a number of possible journeys! Thanks for presenting each option with amazing originality! (((NUGS))) Fondly, Margie

The excitement and anticipation of exotic trips you had been on before and forever imprinted on memory is so vividly you draw.
" some where between passport control and duty free there is door through which anyone can disappear...." the an ominous Sentiment you make your reader feel is very real.
