good shoes

the day i found my ways

i caught myself
in a tangle
tightly twined 
around
a forkful of 
spaghetti from a can’t 
just pullin’ the wool 
over easy
under the radar
love, life, and my pursuits;
a hapless sock thread
ensnared by a tack
on the threshold 
unwinding, revealing
a novice habit trail
from door
to table, to chair, to bed
just livin’
but barely
breaking a sweat 
smokin’
a bowl of dead ends
Is that all there is?
Peggy Lee, blinked
lookin’ for 
high bars
in low places
forcin’ a smile,
though

your eyes
order a double
some things
are better left unsaid

but winked at…hell yeah
I caught your act
you charlatan 
I say strippin’ off
my socks 
I know your ways
You ought to play 
out in the mud
in your good shoes 
maybe, someday
Finally

For 100 Word Song
The song prompt was Patti Smith’s “People Have The Power.”
Love her and I have always felt a kinship with her lyrics
This is my somewhat personal, disconnected take on her classic.
I’m way over 100 words…
Rene~gade.

fart like no one is smelling

the morning ritual
hugging a strong half full coffee cup like
a golden prodigal newborn
right now at the ranch
there’s nothing more

television cat calls
live nude chicken dancing politicians
slipping on banana peels
more at eleven
nobody waits

i pack a half sandwich
celebrity second world tips and tricks
happiness is losing weight
ice cream slut shaming
look out for drones
