Donal Mahoney- A Poem

Gentleman's Club

With feline grace
and feral eyes 
a ponytail 

of raven hair 
bouncing, bouncing 
waitress tall  

wisp of skirt
spaceship heels 
weaves among 

tiny tables
tray held high
in a disco sky

ice cubes tinkling
a lioness amused 
by eyes of prey

never brushes 
a single shoulder 
as men drink up,

reach for money.
Perhaps she will. 
Let's have another.

Donal Mahoney lives in St. Louis, Missouri.
