Venus in a Public Bar
So beautiful that time slowed to silence,
She moved through memories,
Disturbing dominoes, reviving dreams.
Inciting whispers and wistful
Glances from old men,
Who regretfully remembered,
When such beauties as they’d known
Still had long lives ahead
And hopeful futures in an antique bed.
