Captured Couple

Updated on December 3, 2015
Out of the grinding maw
Champaign smokes
A teasing unfurling
Candid affair
Whereupon Desmond hears his name
And turns to see a jaunty 
Young thing dangling there beside him.

The courtship was a sordid affair -
She an acquaintance through a mutual friend
Though unattached at the time
A pal d'amour overnight
into the searing bliss
and diamond deafness
A new star is born, more or less compelling
at the soirees of floor 54.
