pshaw

A Poem By Madeline // 5/17/2017

they sow

tryst, fight their woes with burgundy
bleach their teeth in lies
romanticize their plight
and fantasize in yellow

hyacinths, basking under an indifferent sun
beached on a grassy knoll
the sun will take its toll
while the pull of the promise precedes

this, an isolated chastised moment
a finger wagging sharp
between two eyebrows barred
and scarred, from raising at another

bliss, it's neither here no there
but lies in shoulderblades
a soft skin for a stage
a play, put on by fingers

indeterminate, so it's not needed
so the deep sky doesn't fall
down so hard at night and call
pshaw, you were soiled ten degrees

ago.

I WISH I could write poetry

I WISH I could write poetry as well as you do. That's all I can say.

And I've only done the first read, but I REALLY know I love a poem when I don't even pay attention to the meaning at first...just sail through the deliciousness of the words.

You're seriously such a master at what you do... When I read this, I was (not kidding) visualizing it as print on a glossy magazine page.
