PEDICURE poem by Evelyn Cole

PEDICURE
I met my most recent husband
at the turn of this century
He invited me for a walk on the beach
We met at the parking lot of one city
walked and talked to the pier
in the next city, then back.

I sat in my car to depart
He wiped the sand off my feet
with his towel
ever so seductively

I had my first pedicure today
fourteen years later
I realized that he has not
caressed my feet
since that day

But I’m not complaining
for he has done
so much more
