State Park

4


set the scene
blanket and beer

your striking
good looks helped,
but you were
too – fast, hard to resist

we made up words
to sing, as you
strummed your guitar
I shook
the blanket free
of bugs –

all you really wanted
was sex – sex – I wanted
to sing – create

I began my best song
you wanted bare legs
on a blanket

under an evergreen
sharp needles fell
pinching skin

laid the guitar
on grass
skin scratched
bruised in the park

    Mr J – I really think you are too. I have had a wonderful time with Angie’s Diary and those I have met here, I certainly hope other’s are just as excited about her wonderful work, as we are. Best to you my fellow VIP! Nancy
