There's a Woman

The three men are clothed, long sleeves
even hats, though it's indoors, and brightly lit
and there's a woman. The woman is wearing
a short-sleeved red dress cut to expose her arms,
a curve of her creamy chest, she's contemplating
a cigarette in her right hand thinking
her companion has finally left his wife but
can she trust him
