We Walk the Streets

We Walk the Streets

Whenever she stops me
on my midnight rounds
just to chat about the night

I shine my flashlight in her eyes 
and whisper low
so she can’t hear me,

“Lolly, it’s your intelligence
and taste I find so appealing.
Unlike others on this tour, 

you will never see me stare 
at the upper lip you’ve
carved on with lipstick.”

And so I tell her I must go,  
provided she’ll be good.
Then she giggles, 

thrilled again to be on her way, 
almost as thrilled as I am
not to have to take her in.
