Crimson lips
heady scent
dancing invisible
every eye drawn
not understanding.
She stands
head cocked
surveying the mass
spread before her
an enviable buffet
to choose from
to sate needs from
to satisfy desires from.
All have been invited.
All have turned out.
Greedy little bastards.
Oink oink
goes the piggy
brought this plight
upon themselves
they did.
She smiles.
Eyes darken
graceful gliding
silence falls
tap tap tick
down the stairs
to him she goes.
Sultry smile 
runs taloned finger 
from cheek to chin
strides to dais
sits upon blooded throne.
Party reignites
settles in
her pet upon her feet.
fear laced air
stoned glances
look closer
they have much to fear.
During times of need
they never hungered.
During times of war
they knew only peace.
During times of peace
they strew dissidence.
During times of plenty
they sought to steal more.
come darling 
look at me
I am not happy yet
and ten
never should you have sinned.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
