Girls' Night Out

Source


They smile wickedly while

Raising eye brows high

Hoping, already knowing

Trouble will find them tonight


They are gonna hit the town

Plan to cause a stir

Time and a mark to make

Memories later to relate


They slide the clothes across the rod

With furtive hopes their bodies sway

The music promised later

In their heads already plays


Someone might get lucky

Enough to find a spark

That coveted energetic link

A dancer to dancer arc


All the girls are going

Female electricity pulls strong 

Sister Carol is gonna play

Get kid-less, find a way


Corks slide from green glass necks

Wands slide black from mascara tubes

Bottoms wiggle into tiny skirts

Glossed lips giggle over practiced flirts 


Six inch spikes you're crazy Hon

Boots are hot, but they'll be hot

F' me Heels if your feeling it

Sassy cheetah flats if you're not 


Change your plans you cant miss this

Just go in what you're wearing

You know your hips are begging

Bottoms up, you always feel like playing


I'd be out there with you shakin' it

But I've got my own plans to get down

The only dance that trumps my girls

My boyfriends back in town

I'm reading Mystic River, by Dennis Lehane, right now...girls night out can end in murder...ugh.

What a great poem. We use to call them Joan Crawford, Come F**k me pumps, way back in the 70s...lol.

Girls night out...what a joyous event...even for the guys.

Raw sexuality nearly always finds its way into your poems. I wonder what that means RB. Good one.

Randy Behavior 5 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Figures Randslam, the woman who taught me the term is now 55, but it just fits some shoes.

Raw Tony? And here I thought it was "well done."

You have set the stage well for this type of girl's night out. Me...I'm more the stay at home with robe, slippers and a glass of wine enjoying it with my hubby these days. Ha!


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 5 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Well as my poem suggests, home with my Man is my preference too. Thanks for coming by Peggy.

The realization that sexy women stay at home with their man is not lost in this poem...it is the exclamation mark!

For all those single men who drool and wait for a fantasy that can never be realized.

Falling for media representations--silliness, sadness--go out and experience a life.

RB, love that your friend is 55...the old guy who taught me that term would be about 55 right now...lol.

So if 55 is old, Randslam, when does young end exactly?

Good ol' girls night out. Bunch of ladies get together, get sexied up, and go out to tease lots of poor unsuspecting men ;]

I'm sure you look fine and dandy out there on the floor, Randy ;]

Randy Behavior 5 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Well I do, when I do, but I stayed home.

This is a great poem, in my opinion, it really captures the essence of a girl's night out. Great work :)


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 5 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Thanks Essi. For me the "prep" party can be just as entertaining as the going out part. See if I could just get musicians to play in my living room all would be perfect.

A dance with the boyfriend definately trumps a girl's night out. Not that I would know, since I don't have a boyfriend. I don't dance that way. But from a guy's perspective, a night with the girlfriend trumps a boy's night out. So I'm with ya. Voted up.

Randy Behavior 5 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

You don't dance like "that." What ever do you mean?

I mean my dance partner's not a guy. I was just trying to relate to your poem, but it's obviously about girls, written for girls, and I just feel so left out. :(

Randy Behavior 5 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

(Breathes a sigh of relief) Well thats plain silly. I wouldn't have bothered to make it scintillating for the girls. They already know what goes on behind the scenes.

Hey Randy. These days my idea of the perfect girls night is watching t.v. with my two dogs and twin sister and her two kids. Cozy pj's, maybe a beer or wine and some popcorn. Loved the hub as it brought me back to earlier days when fun use to be going out. I get way more love from my dogs. LOL


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 5 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Funny Minnetonka. No love is bad. Take it from where you can get it: dogs, sisters, and definitely children.

Is it wrong to be turned on by reading about women preparing to go out? Is that wrong? "bottoms wiggling into skirts" and whatnot; it simply can't be helped. A roomful of women getting ready sounds much better to me than those stinky clubs.


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 5 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Its funny Doug once in a while, one man will be in our circle. Sometimes its a friend that's gonna watch the kids or the lone boyfriend or friend from out of town. I always wonder what they think of our girlish silliness. When I was younger, I got to hang out with my older brother and his friends. I was enough of a tom boy not to cause a ripple yet and enjoyed seeing guys be guys. Somewhere along the line his friends wanted to date me, then I wasn't welcome anymore :(

In my teens and 20s, I would love to sit amongst a group of women--same age as I was--melt into the furniture cushions and wait until they no longer realized a man was in the room.

Absolutely illuminating--of course, being women, it didn't take long for one of them to have their radar go off and say, "Girls, remember..."

And a thumb would be pointed in my direction--I would promptly get up and go on my way. Women have Guydar!

If there is only one male, he usually won't change the atmosphere. But a gay guy would be perfect. Little fashion advice is always welcome.

Bottoms wiggle into tiny skirts; that did it. Almost good as toes. Still being naughty here. You still rock ya know.

I'll let you wear the tiny skirt.. I'll be ready to go out in about... 8 hours? Ok.. Pick me up?!?!


Randy Behavior profile image

Randy Behavior 5 years ago from Near the Ocean Author

Let me guess, you're more comfortable in tight jeans and a leather jacket? Sounds perfect ;)

I'm more of a boots and shortish (not tiny) skirt kinda girl. I think its seriously lame when your skirt is so short you can't pick up your keys if your drop them. Seen it happen. lol.
