Measure Once Cut Twice

As an extra added value, here’s some lines, verse , some stanza…that just didn’t quite make the cut for this first week of NaPoWriMo 13.

Cole Porter
is not my hero
but my nemesis
as I reminisce
just a bit off key

———————-

An any answer alchemist
a spokesman for this or that
(what ever)

prayed each day
before his press
parley

to that patron saint
of hotel bars
that guy who wrote
“Lolita”
—————

An oligarch in a
trailer park
cultivating some
low-rent
street cred.
————————————

On a yacht some healthy
afternoon,
say mid-June
my sonar pings
a young
Italian classic
in a white one-piece
as she flings her pearls
to the sea
