I need to clarify that this is neither autobiographical nor really following the current cool RWP prompt but rather a tanka sketching a scene seen earlier this week as people approached an Army wife:

damn she's beautiful
sitting there and making friends
eyes laugh with delight
and next to me sidles up
the bar's consolation prize

Such a brief poem, and such a vivid image. Thanks.
