Ad-VANTAGE


The instructions were clear and convincing her to accept the job was easy, except for the last sentence of the contract. Jump. She wondered what that meant. She swallowed her fear when the elevator stopped with a shuddering groan. They were suspended between floors with a gaping hole in the middle. The only way to get out was to… and eyeing the distance between her and her family, she silently finished the last part of the sentence.

Angst


The time set back

On the clock that is

The clock internal

Is not a fan of digital

“I’m more of an analog girl”

She brags

Oh shut up ,you infernal

Mercurial pain

In the arsenal

The night sky draws wide

Shooting straight through the cloud ridden skies

And that

That extra- superior moonlight

Can be inspired by nothing less

Than your flash of bright

Pontification


Paddling down the Ponchartrain was a pontoon boat captained by pooches and aptly named the ”Dogma.”

A prompting exercise for the word Pontificate

Insidious

Insidiously misleading with sunshine streaming

Creating the aura of happy hearts still beating

Pristine stained glass with stories to tell

17 steps between me and where he fell

Genesis


Via Genesis

Once upon a time

There was a world that was sublime

with fig leaves galore

Even at the general store

And anything but apples were the daily core

Of everybody’s diet

But like all women you know

There was one in the garden

Who ignored the word “No”

Didn’t care to obey

And liked to talk to snakes

And got her man into a lot of trouble

Because she was denying the obvious she deceived the dubious

Her motto and deemed creed :

“Instructions are for Adam’s but

Not for Eve’s”

“Why ,why ,why ,” she’d cry

“I like that tree but I’m not allowed to eat

Or even have a pet

Of the slithery set

And that became her battle cry

“Oh why ,god ,why ”

Poor Adam went deaf with

One rib less , then started to see red

Apples to apples were a catalyst

That eventually accumulated

in a watershed

of liquid depth and people said

“Somebody needs to build an ark”

But that’s another story….
