Lexa the Local Goddess is the shining star of Cormier Avenue.
Tomcats mistake her for the moon,
and set up a terrific yowling in her wake.
If a little black dress went to a dance,
and fell in love with the darkest summer midnight in the whole place,
they would have a baby on the downbeat
and that baby would be
Lexa the Local Goddess's hair.
Look, I know that you're in love with her.
I'm in love with her.
Halfbacks and housewives, cops and cool girls,
she is catnip to them all.
Spacemen and coma chicks want to come home
just to get her to give up a kiss.
Lexa the Local Goddess has the world on a string,
and a complete collection of
Cindi the bank teller's
sighs when she sleeps.
What more could she want except
all the things she's seen in magazines and on movie screens,
all the flickery silver shooting stars
that fall adoringly at her feet.
