untitled (cosmic easy-bake oven set to "roast alive")

she's skirting her swirls
skating thin on puffy lace & petticoats
for the cocking rooster, he's finally home
her parading two-faces, her gaming runs
are dusting to crumbs, as her funning charading
shows her authentic mean mug

she's overbaked her come-uppance
for the hot-footed keeping, all wiley-guised
do-gooder has been naught but embroidered toothing
for she's never done well, lingering just long enough
stirring accusations and seeding rotten potatoes
for sup, easy-set in her ceramic cups

she mindsits her pot of a witch's brew
it stinks of crapauds and cabbaging greens
in white-black lies, she gifts it "good for you stew"
but the cocking of the rooster rents a new dawn
caught unawares, this time, no running from
the peppering salt of her debts yet unpaid, in the mawing yawn

Bjorn asks us to reconsider verbs - to use nouns as verbs - to mix it up, stir it up, dance one final cosmic verbing dance in this poeming month.

  2. Oh, I love this! The sounds and the malevolence. Really well done (ha!) and a joy to read. A tremendous voice.

  3. Enjoyed it all, but the beginning "she's skirting her swirls
    skating thin on puffy lace & petticoats" just sets the pace for this very witty poem!

  4. Last verse has my vote, Pat. "Crapauds" boggled me and the Collins Dictionary though. She's a mess, thats for sure. I think I sat by her in Differential Equations, did she used to wear cutoffs, go to class barefooted, and leave her big yellow dog outside by the stairs? I.e. a Hippie in her own right?

    1. Crapauds is french - it means toads Jim. I'm multi-lingual and make use of other language words when appropriate.

      LOL@sitting next to her in Differential Equations, but I'm not so sure she had a big yellow dog, although perhaps, it was her familiar in an unfamiliar form.

  6. This dance of tempting and cocking around is just wonderful, so many great uses of the verbs... thank you for living up to the prompt, and I'm sure I will see it used as a tool a lot going forward.

    1. It's a great idea to be considered and used, when appropriate, but I think I ended up twisting my tongue a bit, but since it's all "tongue in cheek" - well, I had fun with thinking outside the box!

  10. Portrait of a lady one would do well to avoid. These stirrers and pokers with their flying monkeys keep things bubbling; the chaos they sow keeps them from having to think about the empty chasm inside themselves.
