#2 On the Never Ending List

Bandied words
trip
easily
fluently
from lips marred with brandy.
Kohled eyes
languid
sharp
always moving
from one man to the next;
biding time
until the mark is met.
Silken skin
shimmering
mesmerizing
glowing in evening’s dusk.
Gliding step
bring closer a man
corrupt,
delusional,
rapist,
thief;
the list on repeat.
May I have this dance?
Around the room waltzing
beautiful couple
in step despite…..
or
because of….. raw distaste?
What none saw
what none could know
poison injected
straight into his veins
slow acting
giving one enough time
to escape.
Hiding
in the open;
wig gone
dress turned
different colors
even the eyes have changed.
Sapphire sparkles
smirk graced lips
struts
confident.
Behind is heard a sudden scream
as blood begins to flow.
Pouring
from mouth and nose
pause
head cocked
dainty smile
another bounty met.
