She’s A Ladies’ Man

More comfortable under the space heater
than by the bar. It’s a hindrance
to lipread, poor ears already beyond fucked.

She carries a lighter but doesn’t smoke. Tallies
flintwheel sparks. More taken by the girls
than by the bar. It’s a hindrance,

this insistent chivalry, each cigarette
begging to be caught, hands dancing
flintwheel sparks. More taken by the girls

than was offered. Shouldn’t be so eager
to lipread, poor ears. Already beyond fucked,
begging to be caught, hands dancing.
