Here for the show. (One Stop Photo Prompt)


Copy right Mike Roemer










You smile,

They stare.

Don’t you know?

Or don’t you care?

You’re just here

For a drink and smoke.

Never mind

Freud’s sweet joke.

But better yet,

I think you know…

The way you lips

Curl as you blow.

Pleasure poised

And pursed and pressed,

Just let their minds

Do all the rest.

Clothed in gold

And cocked just right…

Now who’s first to buy

Your drink tonight?

One Shoot Sunday prompt from OneStopPoetry… This week’s a goody. Check out the other great poets… You will NOT be disappointed… But you may end up all hot and bothered…



three completely unrelated


the bar

is cramped and crowded

the band plays fast and loud and

my whiskey tastes like water

but it’s better than drinking alone

long gone are the hazy clouds of

smoke filling the air

now it’s just judgment clouded

that makes fuzzy faces ring clear

but it’s better than drinking alone


for all I know I’m dancing

upon a razor’s edge

tipsy and I’m drifting

ever closer to the edge

and soon enough I’ll jump off

heed Icarus’s call

drift to sun and melting

then back to earth I’ll fall

but do not feel so badly

so rough for me my dear

cause soon I’ll be up and dancing

oh-I’ll never learn no fear


I am sleeping in my beauty

I am falling from my grace

I am heart-struck down uneasy

and I’m feeling out of place

oh I think I made a misstep

and I fell right into you

took a turn I should have missed and

I don’t know what to do
