At a Strip Club in the Middle of Pennsylvania
She moves my beer bottle out of reach
and says “I have a clumsy ass.”
Spread across the bar she scissor-kicks
and grabs her ankles then cradles her tit.
Some Japanese writing is tattooed
a few inches to the left of her g-string.
I try to make out the design
while she makes sexy stripper faces.
She points at the ink and says “Mother first.”
“As in?” I say.
She crawls back on to the dance floor.
“As in” she says “I have kids at home.”
I take a swig off my beer
and stop to applaud the moment.
She leans in to me with a smile
her tits pushed together like a basket.
I give her one dollar for the performance
another dollar for the kid at home.
She thanks me with a kiss on the cheek
then pets my head like a small poodle.
