NaPoWriMo 04/08/09

Nighttime at Nye's Polonoaise

Night has fallen on Minneapolis,
and down at Nye's Polonoaise
the piano is starting to clink.

A lonely gal in a pretty pink
headband is crossing her legs
and drinking a rum & Coke.

Put yourself in the picture:
pick your favorite drink.
Sit down close by.

Outside it's snowing,
but in here the leaden,
colored glass is warm.

Wait from song to song
for a song you know, a song
to take you home.

Then that gal kisses
the microphone, and chirps
"take the ribbon from your hair."

Oh, skinny northern Mississippi
River, Southern boys
get so cold up here.

But maybe a pretty
Twin City lady
will give us a place to stay.
