under

lush green

canopy of

rainforest,

 

mango man

can tango, man,

 

with

orangutan

rhythms,

 

strutting his

burlap suit

and faux

gorilla

slippers.

Inspired by mask photography of Phyllis Galembo and Anthony Desmond’s prompt at d’Verse.  My son chose this photo (from my 3 favs) and dubbed it “mango man” so i went with it…

    Oh, I really like what you did with that picture. (I used the same one.) I enjoyed the light-hearted approach. Your words, and the picture you created in your poem, made me smile.

    Great wordplay – very creative and imaginative. I loved the “sound” of this.
