NaPoWriMo – Prose Poetry – April 16, 2016

- Albert Finch

Knobby kneed she’s not –  notice
the shapely curve of leg and thigh.
When one thinks of a skeleton in the closet,
One doesn’t expect this .. rather fleshy isn’t it?
Sam’s wife is sitting in the living-room,
(She’s just come back home unexpectedly).
He called me on the phone – asked me over …
I popped in without hesitation.
My apartment door is in front of theirs.
Now how do I get her out … amazing, Meredith
Hasn’t caught on yet … but then, he was wise –
He didn’t take her into their marriage bed!
She’s nearly dressed …
We’re ready to leave the guest room –
I explain my plan then I go ahead of her …
“Mere and Nadine – come here onto the terrace,
Let’s have a glass of wine.” he says.
“Fine!” I reply, thank heaven’s he’s got some brains.
Meredith sits with her back to the door.
The young women streaks through the room
And out the door she runs.
How is it that it doesn’t slam – a miracle I suppose.
I feel clammy – what one doesn’t do for a childhood friend.
Meredith rubs her knee against mine …
Now this is a different cup of tea,
She’s come home early to be with me.

  2. Oh what a delightful twist! Love this 🙂 Really great combo of the photo, the prose poem and fitting it in with the April PO challenge.

    I’m still smiling in delight and wonder – the flow works so well …. and it’s really quite delicious!

    • Hiya Pat .. glad you enjoyed the poem … that was rather an intriguing photo wasn’t it .. I actually wanted to write an alliteration for N … but my muse didn’t agree … but I’m happy with the little story that popped up 😉
