It had been Months
Since I left Iambe laughing at me
As I walked out swearing NEVER
No more….

I’d seen Texas panhandle
And Arizona sun in my rearview,
Danced with a few Senoritas
Trying to quiet night fears of growing old.

I pulled back into town after all this time
And headed for the Railstop Bar
To wash the dust and taste of crow
I was about to eat from my mouth
When I saw her truck.

She was there, waiting as she said she would be
When we had talked on the phone
A couple nights ago.

I walked in and took the stool beside her
As Joe the tender sat a beer in front of me.

Her eyes were still the bluest I had ever seen
And this time they weren’t laughing at me
And she didn’t seem to have drawn a bead either.

I almost fell off my stool
When she actually put an arm around me
To the tune of “I missed you” falling from her lips.

I enjoyed this very much.It's a sad thing to be laughed at when younger and it seems when we grow up our standards seem to change.

Morning Peaches,
this is part of a much longer ongoing ( never ending some would say) series of poems about Iambe. Iambe is a construct of my imagination from people I have known...and can be quite a pill.. but holds an appeal to me perhaps because she as a character is so inclusive of many people.. Thanks for the comment and if you want to find the other Iambe poems they are in the archives somewhere.

So that you won't ever forget me.~
