So, lunch is on me then - eh?

suitably pursed,
raised to the correct angle.

She sits and sips the last dregs of
life she's just squeeezzed outta me.

A fitting accompaniment
to the thick slice o' succulent wallet
she's so elegantly carved out of my arse.

Dripping with greenback-
for those blessed with perfect diction,
her lawyer comments on the tenderness
of my sauteed sweetbread!

"hummmm a little stringy
but ever so nourishingly juicy".
as he pours the remnants
of my self esteem on to his final bill.


Last few words: 
I loved her reeaaally, honest, I did,,,,, honest!

I think you have been taken for a "Ride" Obi! sounds like you had a very bad trip, to say the least. so sorry to learn of this...but, the experience makes for excellent poetry! I love it all!

*hugs, Cat

When someone reads your work
And responds, please be courteous
And reply in kind, thanks.

Hiya, Cat.

The "Ride" was surprisingly easy given that I ended up with,,,,,,,,
The Cat, (Henry), the House, and The Blown Glass collection.
And she ended up with " The Chlamydia" ( The itch that keeps on giving )

hugs, Obi.

Very good write Obi! The venom in this piece is visceral - I felt it, and the monetary remains of love in the ashes.

Hiya, Michael.

No venom reeaaly,,,,
she was just intelligent for me,
I couldn't keep with her neurons,
and she, never learnt the art of, irony.

Hello, Obi,
I have the feeling your amazing sense of humor helps you get through most anything. A clever write by a very clever poet!

hiya, L.
Got it in one.
Humour is a coping mechanism for a multitude of woes, a trait well worth cultivating.

Obadiah, thanks you !

your higher power. You're okay, you'll be alright!
