as saturday becomes saturday night, john grey

early evening, fading light, creeping shadow daub girls in gray –
then night hours blacken
fight back
with neon
and fingernail polish –
soon enough,
the prettiest of them
will lose the drab shade
of her skin,
sashay somewhere
between brown and golden –
and true to my thoughts or at least, compatible with them
