Changing My Tune

I tried it your way, Suzi Q.
Rocked hard
fell hard
filled my leather pants
pockets with cigarettes
and cold regrets
and empty promises.

From now on
I shall rock soft
in porch swings
and simple springs,
delighting in yoga pants
and second chances
and dancing in bare feet.

  1. From now on
    I shall rock soft
    in porch swings
    and simple springs,
    delighting in yoga pants
    and second chances
    and dancing in bare feet.
    Love this and identify with it completely. Wonderful write!

    Liked the leather pants w/ cigarettes – and then “cold regrets.”
    Suzi Q. too, will have to slow down someday. Time will catch up with her :)

  5. De, your internal rhyming is spectacular in this poem. I miss my leather pants.

    De the internal rhyming is perfect! And the poem is such a delightful flow of images ending in joy:-) :-) love it sometimes I’d like to figure out how to sit on my porch swing in leather pants but that’s another poem….
