She loved the scent
of ink and smoke -
and the way strangers
caressed her name
like the verdant rushes
rolling off the river bank,
or a low slung
black dress
sprawled dangerously
across the floor.

Mornings found her
curled up
where the light
shivered blue
and the cat's tale
lingered like a secret,
waking her from dreams
brighter than early frost.

But it was night
that bought and sold her,
made her heart a trinket,
dressing her in silk
as new as nuptials -
that flagrant shade of flush
and the rough and tumble
of her hips
serenading the world

I feel like I say this every time I comment on one of your poems but it is always true. The way you string words together is beautiful. Your imagery is so strong and beautiful. It creates a vivid scene and an intimate view of this character's life. Beautiful.

Very nice.

One question - cat's tale, or cat's tail?
