Short red hair
with a yellow bandanna holding her hair back
She smiled at me
and I saw her fangs.
She was dressed like a 70’s disco dancer,
and she was slinging drinks like she had been chugging them all day.
I didn’t know her
but I wanted to.
I ordered a beer and watched her.
She was majestic,
A mythical creature,
something from a Greek tale–
a siren maybe.
I sat back and drank my beers.
She started to dance to a punk rock song I didn’t know.
I smirked at her and as my luck would have it,
she looked right at me.
The mythical woman danced my way.
I raised an eyebrow as she approached.
She really knew how to move her hips.
I was in a trance,
a combination of the booze and her.
She sat on my lap
and whispered in my ear,
‘Let’s go to Saturn baby.’
She licked my neck but I pulled away,
raised an eyebrow,
and asked, ‘You driving?’
She giggled and pulled her keys out of her pocket,
dangling them in my face.
I chugged my beer,
picked her up in my arms,
and carried her out of the bar.
And that kids
is how I went to Saturn.
how I met your mother.
Now go to sleep.
