Lady Chablis

FROM SAVANNA IDYLL

Lady Chablis is not somebody
you’d want to see,
without something else in mind.
She’s a bit of Savannah color.
More genteel than New Orleans.
A fracas, but inside a soulful person.
And the girls like her
as much as the boys.
I take her seriously.
She has the laughter of a southern girl,
and the heart of a gentleman.

No one says she can’t be what she is.
Like a lighthouse,
she’s got flash,
but lets no one stray beyond themselves.
If you come this way,
after the sight-seeing,
she’s someone to meet.
Southern gentility,
flair,
and hell-bent within the rules of respectability.
