Eyes worshiped her breasts as she swung around the brass pole, allowing everyone time to adore. When the music stopped, she gathered the wrinkled Washingtons that littered the stage, and slid them along her thong so that their paper lips kissed her hips; if she came across Lincoln, she slipped him in the V.I.P area up front.
