No Ducat, No Penny
I shall eat nothing but
Bananas today and pumpkin pie from Trader Joe’s and the sky beyond the Hilton across
The street tells me such is so
All the old
American movies (Turner Classics) are about tension love and the
Women are more tempting more powerful than
Women today. They, the girls of the old movies,
Wear funny hats and thick fur coats and pantyhose of silk, well aware
Of a man with ducats money.
I shall marry one of the girls tomorrow and tell
Her the day after that
I have not a ducat penny.
We shall ascend to the rooftops near God and blissful.
Such is the stuff of love dream stuff.
