A Devil’s Laugh

worn Levis, black hair
VO5’d to a duck tail
sleeve stiff with Camels
tattoos exposed
slack-kneed stroll
teasing fight-hungry fists

every mother’s warning
every father’s fear
naif that I am
you could have
your way with me
you and your devil’s laugh

Totally Optional Prompts offers an aubade form as the challenge for this week. Mine is not so much.

Heres a 'funny' for you - How can you call yourself a vegetarian and smoke Camel cigarettes?

Yep, the girls all go for that guy and then are disappointed when she grows up and he never does. She ends up abused, pregnant, and hopeless.

Linda Jacobs said...

You described him so clearly!

Love it!
