Unexpected Piano


Aroma of dewberry
     (retired)
precedes your entrance
& should be accompanied
      by sax solo

Resort to defacing
glossy chick-magazine
      spreads
with ink moustaches
and horns

Against all logic
gonna need another hit
     of Café Bustelo
to swallow down
   this desire


#NaPoWriMo Day 12!
For Fireblossom Friday in the Garden: LOVE
and Skylover’s Word List: DEFACED

N.B. All love & respect to extraordinary Shay, always! xo

  1. I love how the title knits itself into the lines of the poem. This made me sigh and laugh a little bit too.

  2. A beautiful melody! Love never sounded so sweet. I love the euphemisms and the "aroma of dewberry".

  3. As I remarked on FB, I love this! Been there, got the tee shirt, drew the mustaches!

  4. And I thought I was the only one who drew the horns and mustaches on the pictures. Yeppers. I got the gold colored plastic award on this one.

  6. Not sure, Marian, if I'd play that babe or not. With the distractions I'd be afraid there would be some stray notes

  10. That’s a brilliant title, Marian, and I love the combination of aroma of dewberry and sax solo. The ink moustaches and horns raised a giggle!

  11. Sappho griped like this. That friggen Eros, shot in the keister again. Plinking those ivories in golden saunter.
