Red high heels

Relaxing,
the pleasure of
Rocky Rhodes
entices me,
I sit and enjoy
a taste of
the world,
a lady walks by
In red high heels
how sublime
camera
slung
over her shoulder
her life
stored safely
by her side
In a gigantic
Gucci handbag
I could only
dream
of that much life
straight as a whip
she glides by
as if on ice skates
my scorecard
reads ten for form,
manicured red toes
go well
I must say
with her
straight legged pants
firmly pressed
the creases
scream
in agony
what a lucky laundry man
I confess
to nobody
in particular,
so beautiful
middle age
I can see
the snapshots
she would take
art nouveau
I’m quite sure
I can feel
her art,
I can hear
my heart
her thoughts
are full of Bukowski
forr I can see
Black Sparrows
in her hands
as she
glides on by
not
noticing me
In her
red
high heels …….

Artist's Description

just observations…………..
………………………………….
Sometimes
I go to a place
To sit
Ponder and watch
The City Centre,
Have a coffee
A donut
Even an ice cream
After all
We all scream for ice cream
One day a lady
Maybe a lady
Maybe im just polite
Asked me what my problem was
I asked her if she really had enough
time for me to explain
She gave me the finger
I said thank you
I am mannerly
She told me to get lost
I said
I have been for deacdes
She told me to go to hell
I said
The time wasn’t right
Turned away
And bought another coffee.
