Bar Tender

She had Susan Haywood’s hair

no longer in Vogue,

tight jeans and spike heeled boots

the sculptor’s deft touch to hip and breast.

.

While reaching high for a glass

a tattoo above her waist,

the rest hidden under her sweater

“What’s your pleasure handsome?”

 .

The old man smiled;

to lift your sweater; to uncover your tattoo

to trace it with lips and fingertips across your skin

to release you from your jeans

.

to turn you round and see you naked

to touch you, hip and breast

We are, after all the years, still men

“Dewars and ice darlin”

.

About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    So true, Frank, so very true…(Well maybe not the tattoo, I’m not a fan)
    Regards, Pete.
