an ordinary poem

November 3, 2008 rosspoetvassilev

by David LaBounty

 

red hair just

about shoulder

length along with

 

a loose blue

t-shirt and

dull blue

 

jeans hugging

curves just

starting to

descend and

she walked

on a cloud

of stale booze

and sweat

mingled with

cigarette smoke

and perfume and

the face was

 

almost pretty

and the wrinkles

around the green

eyes seemed to

twinkle with

warm memories

of broken

dreams and

screaming orgasms

and it all became

 

so unremarkable

when she told

me her husband

sent her in

to buy some tires.

    A vivid portrait. I could really see her.

    My favorite line:

    “dull blue jeans hugging

    curves just starting to

    descend”

    That’s what good poetry is all about.
