She wears a battered leather jacket ,
candy pink baby doll slip
and sky rocket stilettos with
soft silk  ribbons ,
listens to Siouxise Sioux ,
on a rewind loop -
she can’t get
no satisfaction ,
eyes like rainy Sunday
with flutter satin lashes
bedroom lips on red alert -
bell pepper hot-suck hard and flirt ,
she walked into the grunge pen
like his favourite song ,
marble -moon skin, gleaming ,
under neon kitsch, green  lighting ,
a trading post of astral princesses
beatnik  lizards  and roller rock
boys , acid accordions java -ing noise,
with his psychedelic tulip  shirt and black velvet flares ,
afro cuban heels, and crocodile  stare  ,
manscaped  goatee, 
and feather violet hair
he was ready wanting , desperate to ensnare -
on the smoke blackened wall
his anti hipster scrawl
pimp limp , and sneaker grin
he slides in tongue on tongue
tripping their  kiss with cherry  pop sun.
