Nice Eyes

'You have nice eyes
- I love you!
Truly! '
she told me.

You are pretty too,
I'm flattered
but taken
I replied

Take me home tonight
she does not have
to know
I DO love you,
truly!
She continued

But I would know
I said
Knowing drunk men
in love
had said
and done
more foolish things than this

She put her hand on my lab
and my smile
hardened
as I felt her nimble hands
pick a bank note
from my pocket
I grasped her wrist
and after short
brief
feeble
struggle
retrieved
the crumbled bank note
from her hand

I got up
paid my bill and left
(but did not tip!)

Lighting smoke
under streetlamp
in the company
of stray dogs
and bitches in heat
I pitied her:
a lying
thieving
whore

..who did..

- Honestly!
- TRULY!

..have nice eyes!
