Laughter of a Drunk

Angel's Flight, Vol. 5.2 (1980)

Martin Levy

She pushes him away:
	No Robert	please.
Flies buzz around the light.
She straightens out her dress;
She feels alive.

But they can see the drapes sway
and the silhouette of shapes
moving away

and they can hear
a girl sing to the phonograph.

For fifty years
he has remembered this
and drunk tonight
he feels her leg.

She stops him
and begs him to come back.

Her hair was so soft
he says
and laughs.
