Blind Date


I lap up your lipstick.
Foaming sudsy oat

meal then just burst
like that certain fire-

work in misty June.
My hands are quite

nervous, I completely
agree. Without you.

    Fabulously descriptive! Reminding me of futility and frugality of emotion... of the wishing that one wasn't where one happened to be at the moment... I can relate heavily having just come from that place earlier this evening.... Very well penned... Touché Sir! (Report) Reply

    Have been reading your poetry tonight, get lost in some of it. The way you write, taking thoughts and putting them together
    eventually paints a picture at the end. Very nice. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn

    Haha this one was good too. Sort of reminded me of someone going on a date getting wasted remembering a kiss and some other moments then the rest of the moments are completely lost. locked away in the subconscious as you got to drunk to recall the rest of the date. Not saying that was the case here but that is what I took from it and it reminded me of some experiences like that I have had many years ago. (Report) Reply

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
