I am busy writing a book for publication so will not be posting so often from now on. I will try and post something once a month though! ‘Weddings’ was the topic for my writers’ group this week.
I can’t remember any church bell
but imagine we drank many a toast.
You danced and pranced like a young gazelle
but I recall snorting candy the most.
I can’t remember giving you a ring
but can see your purple wedding dress.
You said you didn’t want a freaky fling
I said these days we couldn’t care less.
I admired your beautiful blue eyes,
you said you’d travelled fast and so far,
I wondered if you often told lies,
we sped home in a spanking new car.
I caressed your shapely malachite ears
but wondered how you saw with three eyes,
you told me you’d travelled ninety light years
from a world of terrible red skies.
