Jeff Skinner – Girl

Girl

Her sequins sparkle in the dark room.
In poor light it’s hard to gauge

the effect and she’s dying to get
the look, shifts this way and that

like a skinny model, skirt held
in front – one of thousands

hundreds and thousands
embroidered by hand, all the rage

she knows at the end of the week
just right for a night out, off,

if only she wasn’t so tired
if they’d only let her sleep.
