Use Your Illusion

Rachel Stanford

 

Hand ripped-jeans, dingy shirted, dirty studs
forgotten black shoes, pin stripped hats
hot, haggered pleather-skirted mommas in toe

 

forgot cries of kids, babysitter tucked in
thrust their two fingers in the air
 rushing forward with the sunshine lights

 

we stand, fresh-faced, starry-eyed
jellow legs, supported, stage clenched fist
wanting his girating body, song sex sweat
 
trickled temples, a twenty year old man,
 with 40 year old crow’s feet creeping
twenty again ( for the next two hours).
