your gift of poetry is odd
as is mine to you

now that's some side-step from your usual manner of writing . . . i had to look twice to see if it was one of mine i would have to say it's pretty damned good (yeah, i know that sounds like self-praising, ha!) but that's not to detract from how well you're writing anyway lately.

Someone must have slipped me a Mickey Finn
washed down with olives and vermouth-damp gin
I thought I was paying for unnamed sin
then looked in the mirror at a redhaired twin

Gone were my mousey, dirty-blonde locks
instead I was sporting a pelt fit for a fox
Not ruby, nor orange nor some shade from a box
this hair was as natural as me not wearing socks

Reluctant I wiggled out of black underwear
and looked down to see if it matched down there
Amazed, I regarded my red pubic hair
and wondered if hubby'd found a genii somewhere

And had wished that he'd married a redheaded girl
who'd rode his virginity with her bright ginger curls
bouncing and flouncing as her pink nipples twirled
while he exploded all over with sticky sperm-pearls

Perhaps I was asleep and was caught in a dream
or reality'd shifted and all was just as it seemed.
I pulled up my pants and went down to my teens
who ignored me as usual while I drank coffee with cream

So I gave up wondering if this was real or fantasy
and decided that a redhead was just who I'd be.
The only way this could be perfect was if he loved me
as much as before, so I'd wait and see

And then he came in to the kitchen and said with a grin
I see you're no worse for consuming all of that gin.
Do you remember us celebrating our lottery win?
So now my beauty, let our new life begin!

Every time the child answered a question correctly they were given a prize but if the answer was wrong they were given a cabbage. They had to hold onto everything with out dropping them. They were out of the game if they dropped anything or receive a third cabbage.

'84 was a bad year for cabbage, I can understand why the show was cancelled.

She's there, again,

He sits in his usual booth
at the corner diner and watches
through the window as the
red-haired girl in too tight denim,
and too tall heels,
chain smokes her way through
another shift of holding up
the street lamp (or sometimes
the abandoned building) just
catty corner to his position
in between bouts of speaking
to people on the sidewalk or
through open windows in barely
moving cars, vehicles she often slips
into and goes off on half hour jaunts

He sighed and shook his head,
wishing he had thirty minutes to spare.

Brilliant. I love it! lol

Hot, Hot, Hot

Thirty degrees makes me grateful for the
successful hail--
cab pulls over.
Rearview mirror glances power
the drive east into Spanish Harlem--
I slip buds in my ears

and it's Spain, 2011,
Flamenco at La Carboneria
black shine off shoes flash
multisyncipated structures
into softly rising, low roaring
howls of longing
for lovers
for home
for lives lost in the Reconquista.

Across the weathered wooden table
a young Russian man claps the rhythms
over the guitar case on his lap.
The dancer's eyes dramatically lower
to the final swish of red lace hem

My tonguetip plays over the rim of
my glass, our eyes raise a toast
across the table. Noticing,
Roberto slips a hand to the small
of my back, tenderly drumming
his rhythm over the bare skin
just above. A fine cool mist hisses
insect song above us, landing
tiny kisses over our sweating bodies.

Cab curbed, card swiped, I tie my scarf
and open the door
to the distant strains of Salsa leaking
through the red door of the club.
