Lake Leguna


About five feet eight
in her stocking feet.
And of medium build.
In a shift dress
with short black hair.
All New York speakeasy
she’s a little bit crayzee.
And she fills up the room.
Lake Leguna performance artist,
does a show tune for me.
Something bright and snappy.
Something to make me happy.
Maybe that little old song
from a Shirley MacLaine musical.
You know the one based
on the Nights of Cabiria.
Locked up with a memory
in a living room long gone.
I’m just home with my child
and the TV is on.
All colours.
All bright and intense.
