big tent poetry gong poetry day 5 new to you. today i pick marilyn monroe…

I am invariably late for appointments … sometimes, as much as two hours. I’ve tried to change my ways but the things that make me late are too strong, and too pleasing.

too strong and
too pleasing
the scent of significant
leads the way

a thought evades
the second hand
vacating the corners
dusty with knowledge

one would rather
smile pleasingly
high heels clicking
and a swing of hips



Poefusion Friday 5 prompt: racket, snug, green, boggle, snake

entranced by the snug fit
of her tight green dress
his mind boggled
with lovesick racket
uncoiling as a snake
throught the
hungry corridors
of his desire

The Invisible Man

notorious as a snake
he traveled through towns
in a snug fashion
impartial to the tragedies
left behind

impervious to imperfection
his racket of ruin
tasted sweet
when his boldness
boggled the greenhorn
tracking his cold, cold trail
