I Like Moll Flanders [by Molly Arden]

Lena Horne


I like the book by DeFoe.
The movie is only so so.
But I should put that more positively.
The movie is not ungood. It's lively!
My favorite left-handed compliment
is what this guy I dated
said when he saw me naked.
He said my tits were underrated.

-- Molly Arden

PS. Nearly from the day I was born,
I loved the voice of Lena Horne.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

from New and Selected Poems by David Lehman
