\"\"

Each day she came by,
The old dame, with her
Darn dog, same time, same

Place, dog in the rear,
Her holding the lead,
Muttering loudly

To herself or else
Singing out some short
Aria that caught

The ear like an ache.
The beret, the large
Breasts, the same skirt or

Dress, the same old walk,
The wiggle and you
Staring at her as

She went by, the pipe
Clenched between your teeth,
The cap, the tired

Eyes, the I’ve seen it
All now, gaze, the fond
Memory of her when

Younger, the guys she
Had around her, the
Hiptalk, the love of

Jazz, the Black Bottom
Dance, craze after craze,
Days after days, all

That and more gone now
You thought. You watched her
Until she went from

Sight, the dog a mere
Speck. Gone. Empty now,
You mused. Wait until

Tomorrow. She’ll be
Back. Same time, same place,
Same walk, same wiggle,

Same backward glance at
You, watching, giving
You the wink, giving

You the nod. She’ll be
Back tomorrow, you
Hope and pray, please God.
