She knows he sees

her silhouette

from across the building

and knows

he paints her

as if he were Edgar Degas


But these times

are avant-garde

Her moneymaker shimmies

knowing full well

the peeping Tom

is no Willem de Kooning


He could not keep up

with her spunk

(yes I mean both ways)

or acid rock and

especially her drug-induced

strident lyrics when she fucks
