Down beat

Stuck in some film
I will fall in love here
as the music builds
replacing the dirges of the week
with a saxophone
crying in the jukebox

I used to worry
this first impression
a benefit of time passing
my don’t-give-a-rat’s-ass
sets in
the whole club in jeans
and I am wearing lace

Ignoring you
like a girl in school
crossing my legs
the smoke rings
giving me away
each way I turn
wafting towards you
