Her Rings

I took a swig from the newly poured beer

and asked her about her rings

they looked kinda cool

well

the first ring was a gift from her boyfriend

the 2nd ring was an engagement ring

the 3rd ring was her wedding ring

all the rings were on the same finger

A sparkle was in her eye - beaming

as she explained each one to me

her 2nd marriage?

wow....didn't persue that

 

She's the icon_queen.png cutest bartender in Marlborough

33 but looks 23

happy go lucky with spunk

graceful and natural

all the customers cant help oogling her

up and down, from their bar-stools,

the entire time that they're there

her eyes are what floor me

deep brown and soulful

I always tip her well

 

Surprised to see her working at 11pm

on a Tuesday

" Dart Night "

The pub's parking lot was jammed packed with cars

all men

except for her

and the lady I walked in with

her favorite cd on the jukebox?

Paul Simon's greatest hits.

played six songs from it

her favorite 3 last

 

I'll find out her name some day

and change the title of the poem

to that

Hi pawn shop,

 

You write evocatively about chance encounters, draw great details of the characters and their interaction and always end with a sense of something unresolved and wistful - so true to life experiences. The reader feels drawn into a world - physical and psychological - of the narrator. This poem is no exception in this sense.

 

Thank you for a great read.
