Such a lady
With black curled tips
Soft mahogany skin
The woman I always wanted to be
Become the open shell, shining
Moving my fingers
Dangling earrings
Put on makeup
Just like her

She wore a cashmere powdered blue dress
Stunning, I smell sweet perfume depicting sounds
Fringing, iron
Buckled blue suede shoes
Lipsticks broken
Loaded up pins

Here-is her freedom
in the back pocketbooks
Cropped-it was the permanent last breaths, before
She walked out the door
Us in our nightshirts

Complex, but we understood
We cradled hollow dreams
Fingers webbed in nibbles
Plucked by- be goods
momma might meet some one new
worthy to her-love us

The shatter of dead end nights cabarets
When we were left woven waiting, like
Cold ribs from I-wanna-dance-kisses
Crystal candy lollipops on pillows
enveloped in plastic dreams, scattered
Potato salad wrapped, save half for your sister
We watched, I remember
Beneath still mourns
