Lamentation Twelve

Two-Step Haiku

The Sailor: "Dancing's
the vertical expression
of flat-out intent."

Venus: "In your dreams!
You'll neither dance nor grope me when
you're falling-down drunk."

Tess Kincaid's weekly prompt and many responses to it can be found here.

  1. Well, what can I say? A mini play in haiku form. Stand aside Willy, the Asian age has arrived!

  2. We learned as young women exactly where dancing would end ... and they were right of course. But what a way to go?

  3. Too funny...! Except for the falling down part! Ha! Ha! I just adore your header photo!

  4. Stafford hit the nail on the head - a mini play it is. :)


I welcome your comments, the gloomier the better. I don't think there's much hope, but that doesn't mean I'm not interested in what you have to say. If you expect me to approve your comment before it appears, you're about to be disappointed. Never have understood why some hypersensitive bloggers need to see what others say before they allow the comment. Poor, sensitive wee souls.
