From Tales of Yella Dove Tavern

dave came in last week to buy rounds for us
and ask after heather, whom he for the
longest time had a crush on.         after some
silly questions jibing dave to describe
her   —   slim, gorgeous, green-eyed, about five-five,
a spitfire on whiskey and a daddy’s
girl on wine . . . oh, and a dishwater blonde
with godiva locks past a chiseled ass   —
jimbo, our latest ‘jim’ bartender, told
him heather had run off to college out
west somewhere  .  .  .  jimbo omitted that she
had run off with some adjunct professor
of theology and that they were out
living in some commune as man and wife . . .
