“Comb” by Wayne Burke

Saturday night at the O. C. Buck Show
we snuck in under the tent flap
a dozen of us HURRICANES
red & white football jackets on;
I stood in the front row as
a stripper with a rosy white body
strutted across the stage
and stopped and squatted in front of my face
and I must have blushed because
she said “he’s shy” and
she stood and squatted in front of
Schlonski, an offensive tackle who
handed his comb to the girl
and she combed the hair between her legs
then threw the comb into the air
and it landed at my feet
but I did not
pick it up.
