Spring Perfume

by September 3, 2022 0 comments

Her scent announces
the riot about to occur
in one of those places
that will always be your favorite
even if the food is lousy

Her gift makes you feel
like you’ve gotten
a king’s ransom
queen’s pardon
and royal flush
her sly wink
seals the chaos

The birds and sky
had better well
put on a grand show
because you feel like
dancing
out the diner
oblivious
to the stares
your vacant smile
creates

editors note:

A sip of spring to soothe our summer swelter. Let’s dance! – mh clay
