Objectifying Pretty Women

Lascivious, they were,
brutes who compared the curves
of cars to those of girls and
would she innocently
bend to pick something up
their minds raced like the
revved-up cars they worshipped.

Different, he thought himself,
in his reverence for a maiden's eyes
and long, straight, beckoning hair
eyelashes and lipstick and
bangs of a different sort even
though, in the end,
were they not still his idol?
