Woman In A Bar

Cole, Lloyd
Idealised vision of a woman through a smokefilled
Twentieth century screenplay, advancing
Towards protagonist with paperback and beer
Manifestly failing to disappear

Now that the children are asleep
You want to play
But you're so lazy
She walks into the bar
And there you are

Still life watercolour woman in a window
Considers role of kitchen sink drama queen
Stage left - protagonist with cigarette and pen
Considers form of racehorses, IBM

Declining issues led advancing two to one
In slow trading
She walks into the bar
And there you are

No longer angry
No longer young
No longer driven to distraction
Not even by Scarlett Johansson
A few moving parts
Need to be replaced
The engine starts
But only on Tuesdays
But look at it this way

Now that the children are asleep
You want to play
But you're so lazy
She walks into the bar
And there you are

Idealised vision of a woman through a smokefilled
Twentieth century screenplay, advancing
Towards protagonist with paperback and beer
Manifestly failing to disappear...
