Lucifer found her not in the dark of night
but came to her on a summer’s afternoon
when sunlight filtered through the tree limbs
and left soft shadows on the ground below
interspersed with flashes of gold.

He did not come to her with a dark look.
There was nothing sinister in his countenance.
He came with eyes flecked with amber
sharp, white teeth
full red lips
and a strong square jaw
accentuated by a closely trimmed mustache and beard.

He did not greet her with “Pleased to meet you,
hope you guess my name”
for that would have tipped her off.
He winked.
He smiled.
He placed a warm hand on her bare shoulder.
She shivered
but did not recognize the touch.

She sat with him on the plaid blanket
under the mulberry trees
as he softly traced his fingers along
the sun-warmed calf of her leg
up and under her soft cotton skirt
to find her tender thighs,
his hand slipping like silk between the pale blue lace of her panties
and the smooth white cream of her skin.

He had brought wine and roses.

She had no idea the wine was poisoned
the roses rotted through and through.

oh my God. how terrifying. and correct! good job i like this one.

the devil went down to WDC
he was looking for a soul to steal
then make it squeal
a code of ethics to repeal
and to help his minions
the new raw deal

but then there came
a dog so rare
a rotty wielding his
nanny killin stare
no demon escapes that K9's
let all with ears be
full aware


okay its lame but fast.

see ya boyed.

ah t/. love the links.
and they inspired me - in a strange sort of way. tried to write a sestina about san francisco and summer. but the poem went in a different direction. i may or may not post it - sestinas are quite difficult and it is my first one.

she (formerly known as K9)

hah - poetry is contagious, eh?
this poem a day business is netting me some pretty lame stuff - but some stuff that i can work with.

From the lame stuff will come some spectacular stuff, too.

Keep up your efforts.
