Repost

I’m happy to say I have more readers now then when I started this blog.  Therefore, I shall occasionally repost from earlier musings that didn’t get much attention.  This is one of my favorites I’ve written.


Small World
 

She typed furiously
On her laptop,
Excessively
Straight-laced
And homely.
Her tan loafers
Firmly planted
On the carpet
Indicated
She never had sex.
She captivated me
Nonetheless.
I wondered what she
Was writing
So hard,
And thought
Maybe
She was a poet too,
And if so,
Would she rather dine
With Rumi,
Or Bukowski,
Or maybe Plath?
She paused for a moment
Holding her bangs
Between her fingers,
And I thought Plath.
Definitely Plath.

The Chickasaw Plum
