Ahhhhh-merican Beau De(picted)

Today, we are made
of nothing but sugar magnolia
fusion and bluegrass sting;
no
-thing you’d want
to ripple or reverberate.

Bait me a bass
drum, the depicted back
cover where we stare
at nothing, breaking
the rules, ex
-spear(i)mint gum
cracking your cold
lenny heart.

Forgive me, but we
skipped the part
where you win,
sat in
your own silence
and watched our
circles over
lap.

Word list from my Shawna.

    The way it comes through on my phone, there’s an Audi in the title. You know I’m gonna have to research and pick out the new one I *need* now. 😉

    Crazy clever title. I would love you to be my beau. 🙂

    Then it’s also booty and boo-De.

    I love the way you layered and changed meanings from one line to the next.

    The first three lines are especially awesome.

    By the end, it’s a major dance throwdown. You are slingin’ the heat, girl.

    An interesting contrast in the opening. Here is what we are. But its nothing you’d want to play…but then you bring in the drum which will certainly reverberate…fun word play all the way through. ..i like the circles tho in the end…i thought of venn diagrams…bc we did those in geometry not long ago…where they overlap is where “and” exists…and i might just get a poem out of that. So thank you.
