The Ladies


They sing with no abandon
with no loss for inspiration
fueled by liquid courage–
passion from each last night.
They are dancing in small spaces
where it is not allowed
believing their songs are beautiful
better than cliches in a dive bar.
A larger than life voice
adds to the background
losing its hard edge
as a long night goes on.
