in the personals









Wanted:
One carbon based
badass brunette,
poet preferable.

Have you obviated
enough birthdays
to lose count
year after “happy” year?

Have you witnessed
sorrow’s white-capped
obsessions circle a nervous sea
during love’s long drought?

Are you willing to succumb to passion’s mad
gasp and drown in another’s embrace?

If so, circle this ad.

**Scorching responses receive instantaneous replies.
***Glacial responses go unanswered.

I like it! Fun and clever, and a good use of the Wordle words. Thanks for the laugh.

Brenda, this is a hoot! One can't take oneself or one's wordles too seriously. I enjoyed your humor.

Thank you all for stopping to read and comment. I'm glad you like the piece. Ha! It was fun, as Mary says, we can't take wordles too seriously. Some of them are so deep...I just couldn't get there this week.

Witty, with a clever use of the prompt words. Even without them I like your wordplay overall in this poem. Nicely done.
