Home Alone

Sequined and sparkling,
Silken and seductive, she.
Sidling across the room
Obliquely oblivious
To out-of-the-corner-of-the-eye stares.

Pouting and pulsating
Pushy and passionate. She
Seizes attention from him.
Blatantly beguiling are
Her can-I-get-to-know-you eyes.

Blitzed and broken
Bleary and bedraggled
Dawn brings a cheap let-down
Crudely cursing as again
She makes coffee for one
