Today’s Short #Poem 178

Melissa

Safe, in a nice semi home,
the dreamers’ daughter
adopts a style, fashions herself,
then steps out to use the train.

Cattle-truck men
slobber up eyesful,
lick her over until she
shakes, clutches her heart.
but she’ll forget this trip
after many journeys.

The rattled carriage grinds to stop.
Cage opens. She flies.
