Girl in the Lavender Dress
Missed Connections in Anchorage / Mat-su
To the girl in the lavender dress.
I saw you at the Excelsior Hotel last night, your dress in silky waves across your thighs.
I looked left; I looked right;
I was playing chess.
You came down the stairs.
We made eye contact down the bar.
You turned to me. Did I see longing in your gaze?
You were meeting a gentleman…
But he turned out to be no gentleman at all.
It was my great pleasure to come to your assistance and drive the beast from the bar room.
And so, lovely lady in the lavender dress, I propose a meeting.
Same time tomorrow night in the bar at the Excelsior Hotel.
Shall we take a shot at love?
NOTE FROM THE MISSED CONNECTIONS CHIEF BOTTLE FINDER:
Our chess playing Alaskan poet comes to the rescue and “drive(s) the beast from the bar room” thus ensuring the safety of the lavender queen. Will she respond with a favorable move or will the lovelorn knight be left staring at the pieces? We shall never know…
