Heart Break Motel (with apologies to TS)

Come, I’ll take your hand and go

When the dark of night blots out the sky

Like a love struck swain stumbling

I will lead you to familiar, gaudy burrows

In mired floor cafes still wet with spits

Alleys that stalk you like unforgiven wrongs

From feigned conventions and politesse

You turned to rudeness that you couldn’t help

I babbled and you waited for me to quiet down

But then you took my hand and led me in

Oh heavens, I was not denied once more

Another discomfited tryst of a one night stand.
