Venus at the Drive-Thru

Her hand
                   suspended
hung lazily
from a
pearl pale
                    arm

palm up
index out
not quite
                    pointed
not quite
                   crooked

disinterested
disengaged
detatched

De Milo’s
lost appendage
awaiting
                 tribute
or
       change

whichever
comes first
