Mascara


Ugly cried today

Twice but not three

Face in the mirror

Twisted with dark streaks

Put it all on me

Extra thick like

Just like you hate it

I hate it

What a waste

Of high end mascara

You’ll always be

Done


You hate to be kind
I’m sorry
but not
sorry
I didn’t cry
I’m hurt feelings
and your feelings
hurt
It’s ok but it’s been
too much work
A la Carte
Broken heart
why sup
On sorrow
and she disappointed her wits with the end
Auvoir has come again
Huge sigh
…of sweet goodbyes

Just Leave


It hit me like a brick mess it ran red like that just too quick

when you called me out

for catching the feels

you said

You hated it for me

made yourself leave

but I told you didn’t I

What it was about to be

can I still be

Still be kinda sorry

That it got weird the

instant you stayed

and I kind of liked it

I mean I liked you

Before …

when you’d leave

Pontification


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

A prompting exercise for the word Pontificate

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….

Strident


Everyone knew that

The god of the sea would be

Fiercely strident with his trident

Is there anyone who wants to go

head to head and be his foe ?

Not me , Neptune

Not me !

I’m just another chicken

In this rough sea…

Strident
