Green Chartreuse - Poem by Andy Brookes

Electric blue, eclectic you
infra red, an infra dig.
the cafe tables are spread
with poets and artists
but here she holds sway
and sways her voluptuous hips.

she sing smoky
in the tobacco strewn room.
the smoke drifts,
lit yellow in the spot
her hair halos round her head,
her skin a velvet chocolate.

she sings of loss
in her whiskey soaked voice.
the grime of the tables,
thick with beer stains,
absorb the sound.

she shines florescent
her pain so palpable
it fills the room.

too soon evaporate in brandy fumes
whisked out the door,
to pour onto the street,
sublime and treacle thick.
oozing into the night,
disappearing with the dawn light
on the blue note of a tenor sax.
