Xi Wa

I carry two bags of vegetables
coming out of Oakleigh supermarket
and crash into a guy with brown skin.
I wasn’t careful.

I apologize to him,
and he invites me for a drink.

My first reaction
is after the drink
if he wants to sleep with me what shall I do?

He does have deep eyes and a tall nose,
and smells of vetiver,
my favourite scent.

If he had white or yellow skin,
I wouldn’t refuse him outright
in this way.

I thought I had already moved beyond

Yes, that was before I had concrete thoughts
of going to bed
with one of them.
