NaPoWriMo Day 9

Zouxzoux

Jazz Club 1928

She surprises him taking the stage
her slender fingers skipping over the keys
little birds frolicking in springtime
She pumps the petal like a trucker
on a long distance haul, committed
Her long legs daring convention
in chiffon trousers, beaded bodice flashing
danger & delight with every move
He gazes down as she plays
this woman, this wonder,
in this moment he knows he will never
possess her
