BLUSH! Poetics with dVersePoets

All I’m going to say, is if you want to know what’s up, and what has inspired this write, then you must visit the Poetics party at dVersePoets.  Sheila Moore has brought along Kellie Elmore, and they have presented us a daring prompt indeed…and that’s all I’m saying! It’s rather Taboo.

Death to the Lady

Have you ever been thrown on
the hood of a Firebird in a
hot July rain?

Have you ever moved your hips
as Freebird resonates
through the back parking lot

of a small town watering hole
where everybody knows your name
think they know your game but

wouldn’t they be shocked to see
you here on this car with me, my
skirt riding high, your hands

riding higher, you never
told me you could dance like this
My mama never told me

I could feel like this, because a lady
never does…but we both know
the lady drowned

in a secret bottle of Absolute
and now buttons popped with
you on top, I cry don’t stop

…and bid her a fond farewell

Okay…I tried! Dare you to tackle the prompt of Taboo….hit the pub Now! Seems there might be more than Poetry in motion over at dVerse

  1. Ah, the memories. If I brought up some for you, you have definitely returned the favor–only mine are much more pleasant, I think. This is a very good poem, Natasha–as tight as the narrator after all that Absolut. ;_)

  2. coldshower…coldshower…icantevengetmy spacebar to work…haha…smoking tash…while we are blushing i got busted at park n ride once in high school…i gotta say….FREEBIRD! my lighter isup tash…ha

  3. ahh! young love.as my age, I'd pay a lady to throw me on the hood of a firebird!!this was a fun read….reminded me of the vivacity of youth in passion.I'm thinking of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof here.Great lines used in catching and moving with the music of heat.I like this poem…thank you for writing & sharing it.Oh yea…you broke a few taboos, too….but wasn't it grand!

  4. LOL – so that's why you like my photo, entitled "Freebird" – lol. Seriously hot and sexy write and just enough details to gives us the image but not enough to make your momma faint when she reads this (smiles)

  5. I love that you pushed yourself here. I tend to get nervous pushing the boundaries, too, but I don't know why. Sex is beautiful, and you made it fun here, too. Maybe we can all stomp on past those lines once and for all. Loved it!

  6. Tash, what you described should never be considered taboo-ever:) Great read, love the scenes and the way you described them with such a great flow and although vivid, you used a subtle flair, which I find is so much better than simply spelling out every step-allowing the imagination to fill in the unpainted sections. Great job here, great read, thanks

  7. "A secret bottle of absolute" – a line worth getting out of bed for – made my toes curl with poetic pleasureand yes I have been thrown over a hood or two!Never a firerbird though maybe a mini (how English)nice job Tash

  8. Natasha I'm not sure if you intended it or not, but obvioulsy the vodka Absolut is sans the "e" and since you used it, I loved the duality of that line. Gave me a smirk out loud, if you will. Fun read, lady.-Pounds

  9. "buttons popped with you on top" Wooo! Spicy, and unlike you, I'm not blushing, haha. So nice to see this different side, the taboo of wanton sexuality expressed so playfully, deliciously. Gene
