safari lady

safari lady 
strode
across the back
of a
zebra
in flattened
snake skin
bare feet
brushed lightly
with sand
left over
from this mornings
barren
beach walk

safari lady
woreout
pink
pin striped
liberty
bell bottoms
while crossing
a
black and white
semiarid
world
of ever
increasing
desertification
circles

The thermal currents
lifted her
buzzard
black hair
into
wings

A black crop top
hid her
sagging jowl
exposed breast
leaving her
vulnerable
mid age drift
exposed
so
i never saw
safari ladies
bloodshot
electrocardiogram
red
flatlined
eyes

In her
righteous
gripping talon
clamped tight
a street magnum
sat
cradled
as cold
as a
dormant steel
mouse

SHIT

spilt
hot coffee
awakening
left me
dehydrated
and
ready to
fade out 
a
scream

BANG

safari ladies
Philadelphia cream cheese skin

SPLATTERED

With blood red lipstick
from another woman
by cheats

I discreetly left
stage right
to wipe
off
some
blood red lipstick
from my
cleopatra
grape lovers
popsicle
farewelled
iced scream
smile
