Gum Up the Works, Girls
by Lisa Marie Brodsky
I'm waiting for your heartbeat to slow, for the crowd to part in order to see you; I'm waiting for the music to slow down, for the glasses to stop clinking; I'm waiting for that red-breasted Minx to get her hand off your shoulder because there's no way I'm comin when someone's got her claws into you; I'm waiting for the hour d' evour to feature tiny spinach pies so that minx can get the mischievous quasi-lettuce between her teeth and have to go to the bathroom to fish it out; I'm waiting for you to stand there alone, leaning against the bar, cupping your gin and tonic, surveying the room; I'm waiting for the room to empty out a bit; now that the moon's gone behind the clouds it's really close to that time; I'm waiting for that moment when the pianist winks his eye and grins, telling us it's his last song for the night; I'm waiting for you to finish biting your lower lip and just when you think you'll be going home alone, baby, that's when I'm breezin on over

Hehehe. Wonderful. Competitive, possesive, and sexy. Is it meant to be in paragraph form, or are there line breaks in there somewhere?
