Goodtime Girl





a goodtime girl
aglow with smiles
outside a gossip's heart

her afterwords
marked by meddle
sometimes did ripen

form damaging debris
unchecked by sudsy rinse
or 'not-I' chuckle

Michelle at Poefusion Friday 5 offers the following words for prompt:

meddle
afterwords
debris
rinse
ripen

Hello Tumblewords~ You always make such good use of those five words. I think we all can relate to that kind of girl, can't we? Well done. Have a nice weekend.

I am particularly struck by this combination:
"her afterwords/marked by meddle"
Such a creative and unique use of words.
