Day 14: Keys

 

Keys
 
We never freeze.
Florida Keys.
We are languid overseas.
Florida Keys.
Tropical cyclones or gentle breeze.
Florida Keys.
Palm and oak, a mixture of trees.
Florida Keys.
On the beaches, semi striptease.
Florida Keys.
Cosmetic surgeons with expertise.
Florida Keys.
Real estate vendors with dubious guarantees.
Florida Keys.
Genetically modified mosquitoes to help fight disease.
Florida Keys.
Listen on the street, chatter in American and Cantonese.
Florida Keys.
A world of small islands, coral and everything to please.
Florida Keys.    Linda Prince
