Chapter 8 - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Goodnight teaser.
With your emptiness,
And suspicous intent!
You sent two drinks,
From the bartender with a wink!
Believing a weakness,
Will provide a hook up to link!

Goodnight teaser.
I've seen you hop from table to stool.
Flirting with your looseness glimpse,
Hoping to attract unescorted fools!
I happen to be in research...
Observing singles at meat bars!
And if you have read the note I've sent,
You'll discover my taste for raw oysters and caviar!

Goodnight teaser.
I will probably be up real late!
I will put some wine on ice at 10.
And if you're not knocking on room 815...
By midnight,
Then...
You will be much too late!

Goodnight teaser.
I'm seeking a subject...
On those who tempt old geezers!
To complete my findings,
And put a close to chapter 8...
With a bit of social unwinding,
I could use and appreciate!

Goodnight teaser.
I have a view to share that's nice!
If you decide you will like to be satisfied...
Knock softly once,
Pause...
With a 'knock knock' twice!
