She strokes ivory, high-low-high
Chords striking indifference in this blues bar
Long straight blonde hair swings rhythmically
Her pure-as-liquid-silver voice hushes the crowd

Green eyes penetrate the chosen ones
Men twist round in their chairs
Too good for this foul smelling joint
Her sultry, dusk voice hits home
Sparking interest with her song
The rising and falling diphthongs

Wrapped in a shimmering sea foam sheath
Bejeweled long fingers loving ivory
Smoke drifts around like ghosts, unaware
She is lost in the realms of reverie

Her intensity bounces around in waves
It radiates, permeates and alters the air
Enrapt, catching breaths involuntarily
A moment captured, she alone owns

Bar maids stand still, trays in hand
bartender mid stream beer flows
Witnesses of her gift, she shares
Taste of heaven, glimpse of purity
As brief as the song is long
A reminder
of all they lack

Well done Corinne! I could almost hear the ivory myself.
