Potentially Naked Waitress

by Angela Kubinec

That a stripper's skill

set would be so readily transferrable

to waitressing was a bit of a shock


But the creamy salon toned

tan and the cutesy cock of her hip

as she explained to a table full of happy hour


what delicious items they could have

from this evening's menu


began to give her away


the better the flirt, the better the tip

as we all know regardless

of what side of the table

we have located ourselves


I felt sorry for her hair


She clung to the blonde bottle a little too long

but managed to keep the bounce and spin in her step

with legs that will only grow more tired


and eye contact that betrays no fear

only the hope of appropriately

generous compensation for her

energy and performance
