Prewritten: thong, gallivant

~Greymane: Keys

She painted skies with fireflies that feed upon the stars
Her thin mirage of camouflage was hungrier than ours
She’d gallivant recalcitrant to voices all along
A seven leveled lunacy in fishnets and a thong
Trapped beneath the bloody teeth that gnaw on her disease
She found a way to break away when words became her keys
She formed her path from promised light of rainbowed monochrome
She sculpted her reality and made a way back home

Impromptu: ditch, sundae or Sunday

~MissMerry: MM Impromptu

Enjoyed the sundae
Chocolate, whipped cream, sprinkles, nuts
then I ditched the date

~

~Greymane: Impromptu

Bust a stitch bitchin’ by the side of the road
Sunday seems headed to hell
Flipped the switch ditchin’ my last overload
on the way to my final farewell

Prewritten: a painting — Consulting the Oracle
~John William Waterhouse

 

John William Waterhouse Consulting the Oracle 1884

 

~~

~Piffin: “Sidelined”

Collecting rare iniquities and spirits in revolt
Some instinct that I sidelined says it’s time to consult
The Oracle of Delphi
Or that bible on the shelf I
Haven’t read myself
In far too long

~

~Greymane: Visions

I sought the ancient oracle the day before I cared
She called on answers breathing past the veil
She spoke of darker futures come to catch me unprepared
Assuring me my chances to prevail

I asked of things from in between I might should quite avoid
She whispered visions painted on my past
The silence I had placed between the things I had destroyed
had promised they would set me free at last

She said my deeper demons loved the sound of my defeat
and to never let them wander on their own
Beyond that day I’ve always felt a little incomplete
My cries a little closer to the bone

Impromptu: jazz band

~Piffin: “Captain Templeton Poole”

Fans spin slowly
On a Sunday afternoon
Barkeep
Eleven men
A storied room
Photos on the mirror
Catch a breeze and sway
Black and white bombshell
Enola Gay
Ice and bottles
In a metal pail
Out on the tarmac
Crash sirens wail
Fans spin slowly
To men running out the door
Rescue truck races by
A tumbler hits the floor
The barkeep freezes
And she whispers a name
The jazz band on the juke box
Keeps time just the same

~

~Greymane: Jazz Band .. I strayed ..

Contrition bathed her destiny in distance she had mined
She painted things she barely knew but stayed within the lines
She stood upon the stage alone in gossamer and white
She left her heart on darkened stages every Autumn night
Complacent in decision on the corner of unsure
She danced a lil fancy stuff a little premature
She rattled things from in between the corners of too far
She sang a soft piano while she puffed her fat cigar
The music takes a hold of her harmonically consumed
Haunting fancy smoky rooms melodically entombed

~

~MissMerry: Jazz band

Twisting turning
needing burning
the keys keep making that fine sound

Loving needing
panting pleading
I think I may keep you around

Jazz band playing
dancing, swaying
the drum – and my heart – starts to pound.

Embracing cavorting
Let’s go, we’re transporting
to a virtual home in a magical town.

~

~Jessalee: jazz band

albeit that there was a tip hat,
the mood intensely festive.
and though ignored, folks filled the floor
in a mob that as very impressive.

finger snapped as they tapped their feet
and shoulders swooned too and fro,
trying to place the big band era beat
and forgetting where they had to go.

silence fell and emotions still stirred
awaiting the next merry tune
when swiftly they heard a lone note, without word
and not a moment too soon

a trumpet, sad and slow, in classic refrain-
and at the risk of sounding corny-
they searched their pockets and parted with change
everyone now feeling quite horny
