Monday Poetry Train Revisited #21

Written for Monday Poetry Train Revisited

PETULIA'S WAITING
Petulia's waiting
she sits contemplating
ain't no kerfuffle but you!
Locked in her closet
a Troglodytes wallet
the names of her lovers
are stencilled in blood...
She thinks that it's okay
to cliche the natives
to commune with the names
on the cemetery wall.
She comments on fan-flicks
and downloads snuff-movies
she thinks that that's groovy
if she thinks at all.

It's never too late to take
The NaisaiKu Challenge?

DON'T YOU KNOW!
