favor
in the folded note
acceptance
in the knowing eye
saddleshoes
in scuff of news
as the blonde girl
twirls her hair
smacking gum
in such a way
she would
never
be suspect...

daggers
underneath mink lash--
"Do this-bitch--
or you will die..."
liquid blue
tranquility
and perfect socks
below the knee
like stockings
for a nurse
or whore--
time
will tell
the difference.

If you need
and if you must
test this woman
to be sure--
let her
take your temperature:

(tell me if you smile?)

Let me
(thank you in advance)

for the laugh--
(it's been awhile)

favor
in the folded note
acceptance
in the knowing eye.

Thank you Kari...



Oh well.

You know what they say--toss it up the flagpole and see if anybody salutes...

grins and hugs you.

Maybe next season...

You say you have problems with meter but so much of this just flows easily... I read it happily and had to stop my scanning from time to time to remind myself what the poem is actually about.  I very much love your style and subject matter, your wisdom always just glows in your writing, this is no exception.

Love ya,
Brian

Faith is a fine invention
When gentlemen can see
But microscopes are prudent
In an emergency.

K - you always bring me RIGHT there
I love that
you allow me to become
no, to see what you are feeling
to see what you are seeing
I thank you for this gift
(grinning to self on own
twisted interpretation)
*smile*
