Tired and sore,
The Honky Tonk  was
At least warm and the stool,
Softer that the old saddle
I kept swearing I would replace
But didn’t,
Mainly because I had ridden in it
Too long to think about breaking in
A new one…

Not much crowd,
The snow seemed to have kept
All the part time wannabe’s at home,
So only the hard-core swillers,
And those, who like me had
No reason to care about the snow,
Were there

Looking around it was easy to see
That I probably should have
Just jumped into bed,
After I showered.

She walked in about 9:30
And gave the room a quick glance
Before settling on a stool
About 4 over from me.

Lord,
That bed looked better
All the time…
Sometimes waking up alone
Is the best thing
That can ever happen

Too bad I don’t listen
To my own advice

She came over and introduced herself.
Iambe is my name and do you dance?

Taking another look at her,
I knew I was in trouble,
but all I could do was answer
"No."

She laughed

When I woke up this morning
She was there...

We didn't dance to music
but she swore she could teach me.


Teach me she did,
But I still Don't dance.

What Iambe Taught me


Iambe’s Lesson

Iambe had tried
On many occasions
To teach me to dance.

I never could master
The idea
Of the music moving
Me the way it did her.

All I ever got out of it
Was sore shins from
Her kicking me
When I would step
On a foot
Or stumble
And knock into her

I did learn from her though.

She taught me that night
If abandon was embraced
Was for more than sleeping,
That lace,
Was just as seductive
Under overalls
As a dress.

And most of all
She taught me that hearts
Are both
Tough as old leather
And as fragile as eggshells

Just depends on how you
Handle them

Ahem.

Should you ever come back
to see if she still lives...

she does.

Because I've introduced her
to others, just to see how
the "family" grew...

we miss you.

A lot.
