Night Stanzas

Civic Duty

by Rachel Mallino
(01/18/06)

He watches as they file by high-heeled,
panty hose stretched around apple-ass,
skirt suits pinstriped like the over-flow
of prosecuting paperwork whored inside
briefcases engraved like their diaries.

Unable to push the throat-knot down
where he wishes his pants would fall,
he shuffles in his seat, adjusts an arousal,
wonders if their panties are starched.
