El Cielo Drive August Ninth, 1969

They are staying in for the weekend

joyful

the baby in the woman’s belly

floating

the stylist braiding her hair

casually

the heiress handing her a cup of coffee

respectfully

It is just a small party of friends on this humid August night

intimate, really.

Someone walks by the open bedroom door

unrecognized

but’s it’s okay, this is an  open house after all

and friends do have other friends.

Suddenly there are more,

three women

unrecognized

who pronounce

“Come with us.”
