Who's Eating Grapes

Sat down
to write a poem
called
I Hate That Guy
but a photo
of Johnny Depp
got me
remembering
how he looks
like you
How
your ring jangles
a bit
between knuckles
Oblique teeth
cleft chin
          your
Who was that guy again?

  1. You did good with your prompt, Marian.
    We are still moving, no posts until.
    Maybe I will dream one up while I'm sleeping though.
    People say I look like ___ Then when they begin to tell me they 'forget' who it is.

  3. I like your subtle reference to Gilbert Grape in the title - one of my favourite Depp movies. Perhaps his charm lies in his ordinary beauty.
