Dessert Placed in an Ashtray

The fur coat chaperoned

a new-found warmth’s arrival

but on her looked more a dress

or that she was wearing less underneath

I was caught off-guard by the indecency of it all

but when put in context it matters little

stranded outside her intimate circle

it gives me the opportunity

to think as someone else

balancing ego and the importance of self-worth

like a dessert placed in an ashtray

or wine served from a gravy boat

does it matter the vessel

if the content itself is useful?

she was my beautiful distraction

from the seriousness of life I follow

in the way that an energy saving light bulb

has kept the mood far from bright until now

I took to domestication in its most natural form

like a stiff-arm awakening to a hello

to all those before the fourth wall is breached

and my role to play through gritted teeth

especially when running late to the last farewell

Elsdell: I'm always complaining about werewolf stories not being original enough and always going with the whole rejection idea. Yes, this was about rejection but it blew me away - and I've always said if a writer wants to write a werewolf romance about rejection, why not turn it into an original piece? A...
