Always Delores

How Delores, although she is usually too

dizzy to dance doesn’t feel herself  87  Big List

of wrong body parts came here she can’t drink

anymore eats almost nothing doesn’t want to go to dinner

maybe another day says Delores always has

a present for the baby new earrings from Publisher’s Clearing House

as beautiful as always blonde hair as coifed as a movie star

white jeans for her long long legs good cleavage in her tight summer shirt

how Delores even weak and dizzy describes dancing

last week at Gavin’s, just one dance but still.

Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
