Mischief – (Prose from 3 words)

mischief, mayhem, revelry. These 3 words are from Beth at 
This perhaps is not what you are use to my readers - 
but this is how my muse directed me. 

Prostitute Approaching Car on City Street

sounds of revelry 
the night
split skirts
ride high on corners
trading skin for money

eyes of youth through
windows stare to lie on backs
open legs - knees bent


 ~ but never kiss

the lowly have it tougher
battering or death, risks
lined up on the street 
calling 'honey what you want'

are they empty


the little girls they were
and how they sell themselves
exhibiting their wares
but who am I to judge

the top girls don't have corners 
there's no mayhem in their world
unlike the street lamp hussling
tease and flaunt their 'goods'

they do 'a job', as I do mine
and who am I to say
this is how they live their life
from day ..to day..to day

Feel free to pass on 3 words :-)

answer me this – in 55


colour me

hues of pink 

words reach out
brushing your skin

a scent you love ~
caress your mind

for I ask ~  what it is
you seek ~  when you say you
love poetry

the quintessence of
words you read~

your own conclusion
drawn ~ ?

watching  artists
at work

doing what they love


Brian at dVerse whose birthday it is today *smiles* has us writing a piece 55 words in length. It must be a story and can be prose, poetry. I hope mine fits the bill. This is also shared with the G-Man at his place as a little surprise (because Brian is sneaky that way)
