The lovestruck merchant
sent over a cameo brooch
to the piano player across
the street.

The piano player pinned on
the cameo, with her wealthy
bosom heaving from its
cleavage, walked to the
saloon's plate-glass
window and winked discreetly.
This wasn't the century for

The noon stage delivered
Laura Ingalls Wilder, author
of "Little House" books.
She stopped in the General
Mercantile for a box of quills,
unruled tablets, and two bottles
of writing ink, for she had a
prairie novel set in her mind
where wagonwheels were the
vehicle that turned the page
and oil lanterns lit the way.

Tonight, the piano player signaled
the lovestruck merchant by playing
Buffalo Gals...Won't You Come Out
.  The lovestruck merchant
had long closed the General Mercantile
and spent the rest of the evening
listening to the goings on at the saloon
from her room above the Mercantile.
Never mind what she could see out
the other window---a bunch of saloon
whores skinny-dipping in the moonlight
in the wild waters of the horse tank at
the livery stable.

Theirs was a cliffhanger serial affair,
picked up where it left off.  The piano
player's wicked sensuality drove the
lovestruck merchant wild.  At thirty,
the piano player was an exceptionally
built woman with a voluptuous bosom
and a small waist, sparkling green-blue
eyes and long chestnut hair she wore in
a lesbian knot at the nape of her neck.
She bathed herself in Milk of Roses and
powdered herself with La Dore's Powder
de Riz made from fine rice flour, both
toiletries from France, available through
Sears Roebuck and Company mail order.

The piano player turned the wick down to
douse it, then quickly rolled the glowing
wick back up for a signal to the lovestruck
merchant that the town was clear.  Buffalo
Gals...Won't You Come Out Tonight

Ah, you learned that trick too eh? Ideas are precious so it pays to get a poem and a story out of the same pack of seed.
I enjoyed this Sage and it left me wanting to know more of what happened to these star - crossed lovers.

A conglomeration of the Wild West and The Little House on the Prairie in this pioneering pen...
Your literary skills come to the fore again, in this fast moving and decriptive narrative
Rock on sister..

Come out tonight...come out tonight to dance by the light of the moon. Life is just as it has been for centuries. We've just be into "labeling" for the last few centuries and, even then...I'm not sure Lesbianism was the rule.
I like the way you animate a poem...make it real so it moves.
Great work Sage.
