A MAN WALKS INTO A BAR

A man walks into a bar--he is looking for his ideal woman
she's a supermodel serial killer who would click-click-click her
stiletto heels against his spine
but as he scrutinizes the room furtively for the smirk that would
leave his fly misty
he only nods to a waitress to bring him a beer
and with a sidelong glance, his fingertips play the label erect
while the honeyed liquid drowns his tongue
until finally satisfied, he leaves
his bottle empty
