she was yesterday incognito
and bat her lashes for the laughs
a fugitive but never frightened
to admit she stole your heart

she was the aforementioned disguised
maverick that wore gloves and balaclava
she came round your edges unseen
all you saw was the drip of mascara

she never mentioned she came from science fiction

she never spoke a word

there were front-page splashes claiming
that she'd made way for the stars
or else was hawking her looks for a living
and bouncing round from car to car

she was the thunder to your showercap
yet met her match in the afterglow
of the morning that followed the movie
that followed the cabaret

she never mentioned she came from outer space

she never spoke a word

and like the living she rose like the dead
and put her shoes in her handbag and left
with the hint of an easterly breeze, she shut
the door

she was yesterday incognito
and bat her lashes for the laughs
a fugitive but never frightened
to admit she stole your heart

Best line: "she came round your edges unseen".

Trouble is, it outshines the rest of the verse - "aforementioned" is too clunky.

Also, "bat" - should it not be "batted"?

Nice to see that you're still posting.

Some really nice touches in here - it has a late-AM feel to it.
