After midnight. The short version.

After midnight.

January 13 prompt, “A Writer’s Book of Days”

Writer’s note: Having written to the “it’s what I do in the middle of the night” prompt several days ago, I’m less than enthusiastic about this sister prompt so’s I’m gonna be quick.

After midnight

shadows are long

beneath hot spotlights

draped on ladies in song.

Ladies they seem to be

remove their shoes and wigs

curled lashes, beads and bags

only then shall you know

look! gentlemen  in drag.

Cabaret! Cabaret!

heels, leather and pearls

where the girls will be boys

and the boys will be girls!
