Perfumed with Black Intentions

the oil of a piano bar
leather jackets of idleness
voices in a poker card
cigars that look too high
as she smoothes her lipstick dress
and tapered leg
where nights are black stockings
dressed in a body of intentions
daring enough to wave goodbye
to a white suspender
a wrecking pink thigh
sensuous girl in a hurry of g-string
grinning like a roll of wire
customers waiting for the nipple of night
lace at the edge of the stage
a bald man, losing his front row seat
reaches for the holier grail
like a memory of her scented life
his mark of affection
her last season
