and Death smiled”
The Big Tent Poetry Wordle Prompt of 28th Feb. 2011
Waking, I gasped
Your boyish smile defied
My typical tangle of questions
Slipping down my thigh
Phrases: “Say more,” “There is also the matter of ____” and “He started by _____.”
“There is also the matter of tangle,” he said.
I paraded a gasping smile.
“Say more,” I pressed his thigh,
“For your boyish questions
wake all flame.”
He started by putting on his slippers,
slipping out of the room,
in cold defy of me.
