Under Construction 3

It happened on the 8.16 to Victoria
She approached me from behind
Like a gunslinger’s shadow
I glanced up
Saw black, spiky hair
A bag slung casually
Around her long, dark, open overcoat
She reached towards me
She wore a silver ring on her thumb
She had the mark of a professional
But also an individual
And I shivered
As her eyes met mine,
As she clipped
My ticket

Oh, the air is full of sexual electricity. (Or is that just my I-pod misfiring?)

Nice punch line!

WV is "ernsi" - who drove the fattest milk shake in the west.

That was never substantiated though, about the milk shake.
