midnight madness

Response to Mary’s d’Verse poetics (choose a quote, write a poem)   photo: Brainy Quotes











lacking sleep my mind felt bleary

blinking smoke my eyes grew teary

my date’s drinking made me leery

“Ed,” I said in tone too cheery,

“give your keys to Raven, dearie.”


He shook his head and said, “Lenore,

pleeezsh let me open your car door.

That bird’s slow driving is a bore.”

He stepped the pedal to the floor;

we crashed…I’m gone, forevermore.
