poolside hustle and heartache in Miami…

Carol spoke of

her recent real estate commissions

on multi-million dollar properties

karma

yoga

great sex

and what is happiness?

next on to pro golf…son on the PGA?

then

big houses, exotic travel, horses, tennis, and parties

the perils of managing a huge staff

and eventually

escaping spousal abuse in Mexico

she said she had 42 drinks

then laughed

as the sun lowered over Biscayne Bay

and the palm-treed

high-rised

Miami skyline

Roxy

Carol’s best friend in the whole wide world

joined us briefly

kissed me on both cheeks

and bought us a round

she was 6’4”

bikini-clad

& impressively tattooed

her mother’s first communion image

Dolly Parton in the 70s

in cursive on her ribs

Miss Kleo

a cat she adored

sadly no more

Roxy’s boyfriend

in town from Toronto

had golden hair

and kept to himself

Wayne, once a DC chef

now hustling

restaurant supplies

his own lifestyle brand

and a starving artist friend’s paintings

unlike galleries

he would only take 20%

his million-dollar smile

and easy poolside ways

must make sales a breeze

he found us later

bearing gifts of stickers from his brand

& the Instagram handle of his artist friend

sunburnt

& a little tipsy

I checked out her art

wondering

how can I promote her work as well?

Wayne’s hustle was just that good
