April 7 ’10: Forbidden Love

April 7, 2010 § 12 Comments

Since I had a two hour stall at the airport, I had lots of time to play with ReadWritePoem’s multi-faceted prompt. Specifications: love, humor, informal tanka…and I added a twist. Blame it on homesickness.




Forbidden Love

your perfume’s essence – pungent, spicy, comforting –
floods my memory as I impatiently await your arrival
I can no longer contain my desire
but my longing blocks all shame and doubt
when my grande nacho plate appears




Ah, Austin.
