El Cielo Drive August Ninth, 1969

They are staying in for the weekend


the baby in the woman’s belly


the stylist braiding her hair


the heiress handing her a cup of coffee


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

intimate, really.

Someone walks by the open bedroom door


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

and friends do have other friends.

Suddenly there are more,

three women


who pronounce

“Come with us.”
