Mary Jane

was plain but plucky
plug ugly but lucky in life and love
a seizer a chancer
when they first invented
the go-go dancer
in a pub called Canny Mans in Morningside
a place where the ladies of Grange
are at home and range, long and grey
rectangular as granite
and sex are bags for putting coal in
such was the elocution there
during the sexual revolution where,
on a giant cakestand
Mary Jane, broad of frame
and game became
half-dressed and gyratory
and the Canny Men of Edinburgh
a little masturbatory

Outside a Giant Poodle sniffed and quietly led its
mistress back to the conservatory
