This week’s word list for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie is: gasoline, lime, bellwether, late, nuance, marrow, flattery, clutter, groove, inexhaustible, handbag, Faustian. After visiting d’Verse Poets, the poem I wrote for the wordle seems to be a sort of envious recipe for disaster, so I’m adding it there as well.
pouring unrefined gasoline insults
on a lime green, all-consuming fire
burns to the very marrow of bones,
through the ancient mental clutter
an inexhaustible systemic purge
of Faustian proportions; yet
flattery gets me into my groove
a direct route to my creative mojo
a finely nuanced dance of dreams
putting things off, better late than never
arriving at the pearly gates of Hell.
