sing and be gone

Poem #4 from tuesday night at emile’s

Back to: tuesday night at emile’s – Introduction

sometimes you have to
for your supper
when the work’s not there
money’s not there
and the rent

is over

you have to dust your talents
work your assets
slip into a slinky
sheer legs and shiny
let your body
do the intro
let your body catch him

between the eyes

don’t give the mark a minute
better wriggle
do a fidget
keep your tassels twirling
and talk

and talk

like you’ve never

just tell him anything you think of
never mind the subject
got to get your pieces
in his mind in his attention
then honey
don’t you know
you’re supping off the menu
got yourself
a brand new best friend
eyes all over you
it’s better not to linger
grab whatever you’ve been given

you’d better
get you
