Flimsy white polyester skirt

sashays, passes for linen

when seen from a distance

in eyes unaccustomed

to finery. Adrianna's legs

mistake this gum specked subway

platform for light studded catwalks

in spite of six years that make

a frowning bridge between

blinding photo flashed heavy

lidded sex eyes and night hued

pimp shiners.  Ankles cross and uncross.

This strut accentuates convex

calves browned by florescent rays.

"The attention getter!" her agent had called it.

Adriana surveys her underground audience

comprised of one dazzled young man,

maligned.  A milky phlegm cataract

is on his left eye.
