Waiting patiently on the dusty shelf
At Burien’s musky Value Village
An old unscratched record waits by herself,
Immune to yellow-tag bargain pillage.
Her jacket is faded and sides worn soft
Yet her cover still seventies striking -
My gaze is held; I raise the album aloft.
Now here is cover art just to my liking.
A graceful figure in a temptress’ pose
Wearing baubles, a gypsy skirt in gold
Afore a backlit black background she flows
I wonder why this record has not sold.
Glanced at again for a sight brash and racy
On her near naked breast – glittering gold pasties!
