Regular Poem: Somebody ought to

30 Dec

really ought to take me

some night
when the stars
are loud
in their brightness
and the moon
is a big promising
loaf of reflected light
and the weather is just right
for a convertible
ride and a sheer scarf
and no

really ought to take me
chic and spectacular

and let me mingle and graze.

I’ve got a pretty
voice I use after a
glass of wine

and a bevy of charming
cliches to say in it.

really ought to take me
on his arm
and let me
rather condescendingly
with people he doesn’t like
for his amusement.

I’ve been experimenting
with updos,
and each is more glamorous
than the last.

I have a lot of interesting scars,
and if the company’s right
I can entertain for hours
just elucidating,
but I don’t have to,
of course.

My leopard-print pumps are out of
commission, but I’ve got other
in an array of colors.

And most importantly–
I’ve learned my lesson
on this–
I won’t bring up Xena, Warrior Princess

unless she is absolutely germane
to the conversation at hand.

    I hope this describes your New Year’s Eve…but if not, I hope it was wonderful anyway.

    All the best to you in 2014!

      This does not, in fact, describe my New Year’s, but I I did have a good one.
      I hope you did, too! And Happy 2014!
