this woman
and sitting outside
the jersey city PATH
will always be
last week's stripper
to old in the face
for the stage
and mixed blessing of neon

but still with hips
ready to dance
from my pockets
as she leaned
full into that poorly
placed mirrored column

and now that same woman
in my mind and brazillian
her face aged
for jersey city afternoon
has my thoughts
for the shape of her hips
and the cut of her lengerie
and my fingers' memory
for dollars from my pockets
