COWGIRL
(1/17/07)


he rolled over
and lifted the sheet
from her naked form
illuminated by the glow
of a streetlight
shining in
through
the window

he could not
believe
his good fortune

she was
beautiful
ten years
younger than he
striking features
healthy body
shiny hair
and a
fantastic
ass

she was
sexual
perfection

he replaced
her covers
and rolled gently
from the bed
so as not
to awaken her
standing slowly
as he pulled on
his boxers
then reached
for his jeans

the only
reservation
that he held
was her predilection
for country & western
a style of music
that he found
too simple
and emotional

he pulled on
a tee shirt
and thought
that situation
would change
in time
as he would
slowly
acclimate her
to the harder aspects
of the rock
that he craved

it was just
past midnight
and if he could get
out of the trailer
without question
he could drive
to the nearest
strip club
and still get in
an hour and a half
of drinking

he walked
carrying socks
and shoes
through the kitchen
then living room
to the front
door

he had
enough money
for a couple of pitchers
of cold beer
and a few
lap dances
if he didn't
go crazy
with the tips

the girls there
played Pantera
and Nine Inch
Nails

beer
loud music
and scantily clad
females

life
was good

he hoped
that she'd be ready
for another round
when he returned
since those dancers
always got him
so damn
horny

she opened
her eyes
as he quietly
closed the door
then listened to him
get carefully
into his truck
coast down
the short driveway
and start the vehicle
in the street

as he drove
away
she watched
the ceiling fan blades
catch the light
from the street
wondering
why she kept finding
the same asshole
with a different
name

a month later
she'd be gone
and he'd be sitting
alone
drinking
listening
to Dwight Yoakum
wondering what happened
and softly
singing along
