She had long black hair
that framed her face like
a lioness in heat.
Her olive skin, and tall
thin body were a temple
of worship for a simple
black dress.
Like a cat, she teased
with nonchallance.
A sweep of her hand
through long dark tresses,
eyes lowered, she
provacatively sparkled
over a steel bucket of oysters.

Like a dance he
matched her moves.
She looked away.
So did he.
She lowered her eyes.
So did he.
The music played
"thumpa thump - thump"
As if an after thought
he did a Samba
before her.
She shook back her hair.
He did a full lipped pout
over a steel bucket of oysters.

Somewhere benieth an
Asheville, Carolia moon
wails of cat-like ecstacy
cry out in the night.

I'm still new to this site and have to smile when I discover little treasures like this one. I love the punchline and I'm left wondering about the inspiration.
