Flamboyant



Speak,
Act,
Write,
like it was your last
pithy
driven
edgy poem.

Have them hanging
there…mid-sentence
spell-bound
salivating
for that morsel
that one
thought
that single
tiny nugget
that is pure gold.
And command
their silence.

Make them stand at attention
click their heels
salute
proving yet again
that you are much more
than sexy sizzling hot
much more
than a High School diploma
and a middle aged grandmother. Much more than a
bank of knowledge
to borrow or
withdraw from.

DAZZLE them
and then…
WALK AWAY
disappear
into the horizon
make them think it was a dream
like a brilliant autumn leaf carried away
by the breeze
colorful and rustling
sprawling splendidly
in the gifted forest
later
crunched
by a doe
in the dark.
