Threadbare images dressed in dimestore suits
Barely contain the self-constructed realities
Of naked people gathering with little more in mind
Than greed, promotion and clandestine rendezvous
Soft handshakes carry no more substance than a sail on a windless day
And harmless flirtations entertain corrupt fantasies
In the dark vaults of depraved secrecy
Daydreams, plans and phantom conversations
Drift overhead as mindless words swirl
Like sand being sculpted by uninspired breezes
Gorging on some mother-less calves supreme,
Semi-pink, roasted contribution
Laid to rest on beds of depleted greens
Pondering superficially our indomitable frames
Wordless vows seal compromised covenants
To never grace these doors again
Only to make plans to return and listen
To the squeaking air being released
From some balloonish ego. . .
At the next Business Luncheon

This are really a tightly woven verses! What greed can take place in the scene you painted. Excellent read

You did an excellent job with this piece. I like how you exposed what often goes on in each of us--going through the motions just to please.
Amy Davis02/22/05
Wow! That was so good, very well written.

This was brilliant. You should definitely not be in the beginners' section!
