Cut And Pastiche

I’d like to revisit
my reaction
to your reaction
regarding our recent
retreat to nostalgia

Perhaps you,
being a woman,
Maybe you’re
not to blame
for the passing,
the demise, the gone
too suddenly soon
of the greasy spoon
and the corner bar
and the heyday
of the ashtray
that populated
both

Perhaps you,
being female,
are free from
the fetish of
the waypoint…
the dew drop inn
of the simple
sit-a-spell
the smell
of what was
or yet to
be

Perhaps you,
being a lady,
paint the face
of What?…”Now”
aware the eye
foreshadows
and to make
a totem of
a lip-sticked
filter-tip
might suggest
mother issues
or the stale and
lingering smoke
of the High
Modern
