Closing Pandora's Box

Oh, to be like LouLou--
Tragic combination
of innocence
and allure,
Everyman's dream,
the MadonnaWhore.
Every man--
but not Jack.
He knew the drill--
The good girl
bad girl shuffle--
Jack definitely knew the drill
and it didn't include
tacky vaudeville shows
or shabby cabaret.
A girl can dream
of dancing shoes,
but best not open the box.

Walking the wire
night after night,
in search of an image--
a long lost battle
for self and soul,
Life was killer--

until Jack.
