brown eyes in a bar doing a mating dance

A pair of brown eyes
female and beautiful
sing siren lullabies
by way of stare and flutter

and peek out from under a fringe
manicured like a millionaire's prized hedge


Another pair of eyes
owned by a young man who
is much taken with
the owner of said former eyes

He replies briefly with his own gaze
but realizes with shy resignation
that to compete with such visual charisma
may be folly

And so lowers his eyes
they too, brown
back to his drink and cigarettes
at least for a minute to regroup
and muster up enough
mojo to do the

mating dance again.
