Dubious – Adjective

“Doubtful; marked by or occasioning doubt; wavering or hesitating in opinion, inclined to doubt”

Fedora low,

Jacket pin-striped and

Laced with gold buttons,

He looms

Within the shadows

Outside of McDermott’s Pub;

Cigar balanced

Between ivory teeth.

His reputation;


Girls, girls girls.

He makes her


Quickening her pace,

She makes a v-line

For the taxi rank;

Hoping he won’t

Advance upon her.

Fur lined coat pulled tight

Around her satin neglesche,

Her heels clip along the pavement.

Before she can reach the rank’s

A cigar is put out,

And a firm hand grabs at her waist.
