She cocked her head to the right
Eyes lowered, avoiding eye contact
As he tells her of his old friend
Who had a scandalous affair
With a hot mamacita
“30 years younger” he repeated
“He married her” he trailed off,
“I suspect she married him because
“He smells like dollars and his eyes
“Are as blue as his passport”.
At the point, she raised her head to find
Her new lover smiling at her
She looked at his pale waxy skin
And all it’s grooves and creases,
And wondered whether others
Whisper the same thing
About the two of them.
They were better than that.
After all 20 years difference
Is much better than 30!
Of course theirs was genuine,
Because his eyes aren’t Blue
And he sure doesn’t
Smell like dollars.
