Tears For Velvet?

You lost no shine
On the corner
Near the Main Street Station
Your name in neon
With that sharp ‘V’
Overshadowed by Obama painted as a Villain Clown
Ersatz palm tree overlooking what?
Government employees
Parking
To man their stations and then
Leaving for home in the evening.
How many ever graced your fleshy hall?
You lost the hallowed art of serving spirits
Bitten by the long arm of the law
Who will ponder –
When the last nubile thing
Leaves your door
Will her cheek be damp?
-J.S. Fowler 5/18/10
