Sorry it's been so long...

Pleased to meet you, my name is Audrey

            Audrey, yes, I come here a lot —

   Floor show begins with white vinyl

smile, hint of leather

             cleavage exaggerated

  by folded arms, flips stray flies from her crown

 

    prince of the moment arrives, basket in hand –

cheeseburger, fries, heavy ketchup…

    twenty four is borderline, god,

 all those times I grind, sweat at my gym –

     I love to, don’t you?

 

Honest game, at neighboring table

     warm dogs lie still, drink in afternoon sun

 

Why does she applaud?

      There are no performers here, except

her breathless soliloquy

   casts her in pint glass, ale-amber light

 

   Complains about biology

    strains into baby pink t-shirt that says hey, cupcake

 god-it’s-too-big-it-can’t-possibly-fit giggle

 

   Listen to those ivories clatter on wood

                 another domino slapped in its place

 

She slips away to freshen her face, unattended phone chimes

 

   Old bones are boxed at last call's shout —

     It’s been a long day, time to get these tired dogs home.

Different but soul satisfying. Brinks to mind my lost cocker spaniel Joy and others who have gone before me. Will read your things as they appeal to me and help with my depression.
