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.
