Poet Gluttony  Today’s sentence: “Help!”

Thoughts squiggle, incoherent


Buffet: delicious challenges, prompts…


Poet finds hard to refuse…

Gluttony—drafts In-box full…words somersault, mum-tumble on page.

Blurry Vision

Today’s prompt: rainbow, serpent, cookie

Blurry rainbow colored


Could be mere winged


Or pain medication’s odd effect…

Putting eyeglasses on, I discover trail of cookie crumbs.

Renaissance Mechanic

Today’s prompt: rocks, oregano, carburetor

My new mechanic


Carburetor, muffler, transmission…whatever

Goes to Show, You Never Can Tell

Six months from the first day we met

The girl with the cast iron smile

Who’d been the other side of nothing

With invisible roommates

Was suddenly in love…

As though light interrupted

Delia became slender half of

Mr and Mrs Deadtree.

My hollow entreaty…that she

Reconsider wisdom of this…

Met with response as if

To a distant hum.

And now we’re celebrating mutual

Success…I’ve published her NY Times

Best seller, Dark Days: Biography of

A Self-Professed Cynic.

Rumple Me…

Rumple me

Quiet way you do

Till my hair’s mussed

And face flushed

Sighing so contentedly

Oh, rumple me

You like to, I know

Kindle now, love’s tingling glow

We’ll never be too old…be bold

Rumple me gently, like before

Rumple me, just a little bit more

Before we go to the grocery store…
