Her Names

name her absurd,
……………..erratic,
…………………evasive.

call her obscure,
…………….scornful,
………………..spiteful.

christen her Poison,
a lesion to cripple,
a taint to love.

solicit her services
at your peril,

expect tidings of
mischief,
pain,
loss.

    wow!!

  3. You were speaking of poison ivy right?

  4. Perfect! I love this. I’m always impressed to see the words used without that many others added. 🙂 I think that’s often De’s goal.

    Great title. Really like the visual effects.

    These are my favorite lines:
    “name her absurd”
    “christen her Poison”

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
