Size Six

don't hide from gleams of wings

or shudder at the vision of veils,

fitful as glances days leak away

against woe a churchyard pales


there's a woman lives next door

Sadie claims she's from Berlin

in her dustbin I found a badge

a Nazi emblem with a gold pin


she seems to live at a low ebb

one not noted for her candour

says her daughter got adopted

I listen, though I never pander


at night wailing assails the walls

her clients grovel amid the dark

imagination merely offers signs

stern jaw-bone, calves so stark


some of them love it, the power

bondage mags in the bin I read

drapes drawn for they suppress

scented jackboots unholy tread


I'd kill to enjoy her full regalia

at the shop demure she looks,

no hallmark of the dominatrix;

why can't I be on her books?

Liked this one, but agree with Leon, can't see how the first verse fits in with the dominatrix.? Good read as always.

Love it Simon, but can't see how verse 1 fits with the rest.
