Since they closed
the strip club
up the street
for reasons unknown,
most of the ladies
who walk down
to the square
are pretty
in a pretty square way:
no fringe no cowboy hats
a minimum of makeup
few bare midriffs
over twenty
fewer piercings and tats
a certain minimum walk
just enough to get there
to the square
at the bottom of the street
since they closed
the strip club
at the top.
