That day in 1965 as Julie Christie
Seduced the pool cleaning man
I sequestered myself behind
A cactus plant for the duration.
It was quickly done. Palm Springs!
This was before the traffic got
So horrible and lawn sprinklers
Rendered the naturally dry
Desert air oppressively humid.
Later Julie and I shared laughs
Over cocktails rehashing her
Recent film “Doctor Chicago”
As we hilariously re-Christied it.
But wait. Do I wake or sleep?
