Catch Some Wide Eye

No One Likes a Single Girl When She’s Sober


they can’t beg
high-heeled stuffed into skirts
that only dirty old men could imagine
walking tip-toe lines
past lingerie hearts and
they can’t beg
not even granted the human decency
as whip-lashed eyeballs follow
short suit, slim supply
firm and supple
hidden phone camera
tweaking coat pockets
just. so.
when the long legged limbers
pace past 38th and Elm St.
with their tick tock precision
leading to eyeball
whiplash
they can’t beg for meals
when they get their beers for free
’cause no one likes a single girl when she’s sober.

  2. I LOVE that title. I like how the walk through the poem leads back to it.
