Two Angels Walk Into a Bar


two angels walk into a bar…
no joke
black dresses…high heels
the whole shebang
their tinsel wings
brush drinkers
in that venerable room
of cluttered walls…
noise smother jazz…
boozy sight lines

they…pace entrance to exit
flash silver duplicates
on mirrors…empty glasses
trail raucous laughter
behind them in the night…
leave remembrance
of a startlement
and rare presence
in that place
