NaPoWriMo #10 - On a birthday night out



On a birthday night out

Balloons and a short-stemmed daffodil
someone had rescued on the way, its head
lying loved between the pint glasses. A bunch of cards
propped on the tables and a glass of wine.
Some empty chairs. Some low-level music in a shared venue.

More than one conversation about your nipples.
You said you know who your friends are
on a birthday night out
and I knew what you meant.

  1. I really like some of the quirky and very original ingredients you have in this - short-stemmed daffodil, lying loved between the pint glasses, more than one conversation about your nipples :)

  3. Hey, I'm a guy, so anything with nipples appeals to me. This is no exception...but not just for the nipples. Well done.

  4. Great poem with images we're not quite used to putting together. It worked well!
