    Rusty Confidences

    She had the rusty confidence of an older woman
    who had fixed her mirror at 23
    no later images allowed
    as she took in my face
    and allowed
    those beautiful eyes of hers
    to wander down and over me
    lingering longer than a lady's eyes should
    which made them into bedroom eyes
    which she did not seek to conceal
    looking up to see me looking into those eyes
    having their forbidden views
    but she didn't mind that I knew and understood
    their meanings and intents
    while I could see she could see
    me the younger man
    learning lessons from her
    and she guessed
    needed what she had to teach,
    if I could get pass her lined face
    and see with her 23 year old eyes
    behind the mirror time had obscured,
    hoping I could see that which would make me wiser than my years
    and I was
    because need recognizes needs
    irrespective of the years
    and facial lines
    drawn down from time
    did not obscure that beating heart
    I could hear thumping loud
    behind the blue sheer blouse she wore
    elbows on the table
    her breasts lying there
    like the evenings two course meal
    waiting to be consumed
    or petted like puppies
    appreciated because they
    shined still after all these years.

    Her eyes followed my eyes and she watched me watching them
    shifting wanting to wring appreciation from me,
    impatient to give the two be given their just due
    parts of her she still liked and loved
    almost like mementos from her youth which
    had remained the same and had not betrayed
    like those lines in her face
    and I was to corroborate and vindicate that view
    with just a lingering glance and willowy simile
    which I gave with true admiration and kindness mixed
    because she had asked me to with her eyes.

    A tear formed there
    and a silent thank you flowed across that table
    and we both understood
    kindness, appreciation and need
    met and married there
    rolling back time
    if only for an instant. read more »
