The Girl On A Bridge
    Suzanne Frischkorn
--And she tossed the red beret
into the Seine turning her back
on Paris forever. No she didn't.

--And you're a fool if you think
she would toss a perfectly good
beret ($23.95 on sale at Saks)
into a filthy river. She wasn't

even in Paris. She was on a bridge
overlooking the Mianus.
Yes, with 95 South behind her.
She wore a blue ski cap
and a black pea coat. She looked

over-peered actually-and
turned around to hitch a ride
to the Kit Kat Club on NYC's
East Side. That's the kind of
girl she was. A straight shooter,
a go getter-not some freak
throwing good money away.

Suzanne Frischkorn's poetry appears in numerous journals and anthologies. Recent publications include Pif Magazine, Exquisite Corpse, Wisconsin Review, and Paterson Literary Review.
