He Kissed Maggie in Paris Texas

he kissed 2

 

 

 

Zebra skin and jelly heels

       It’s a shrink wrap fit silhouette dress

    her eyes like buttered raisins hold the promise of something new

            someone warm with a chess intellect

                   His  move king to rook one   

                 Her move knight to knight six

             Above the fried dirt and Jesus statue 

                      Cross salvation in cowboy boots

                   he placed his open mouth hot and sweet

                         on cherry red naked heat

                        Tongue slide taking him high,

                            high into Janis Joplin skies.
