Fitting In: A Poem

Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and has become a moveable feast of word or picture or music prompts to encourage us to write stories, poems, or whatever strikes our fancy.   This month, the prompts are being provided by River at her blog, Drifting Through Life.     

This week’s words are:

1. covered 2. alloys 3. skidded 4. potpourri 5. fixation 6. chemical 7. earmarked 8. lettuce

She skidded to a stop
when she saw the alloyed spot
earmarked for her fancy
an uncovered open plot
Fixated on the details
she wished to know it all
Why they picked this for her
why they’d even call
But then she saw the meaning
like potpourri upon a shelf
like lettuce with some dressing
it perfectly matched herself
A chemical reaction
which started in her brain
A shelter from the storm
Desperation was in vain.

Zombie Queen
Blues Sonnet

I want to write you a love song, baby
I want to sing my love to you, baby
As your glazed eyes look at me with maybe

Instead, you want rotting flesh and torn limbs
My horror penned in blood upon your limbs
So my thoughts of love turn to antonyms

I want to kiss - want to suck your blood, love
And drain your soul through your dying heart, love
To dine on morsels of your flesh thereof

And I want to see fear…
