A Headline East of Denver

We were a headline
east of Denver when
April joined us at the hip.

She was selling rain
by the bucket, and
bragging May
wouldn’t bloom
without her.

Two briefcases
closer to embracing
random we took
April’s hint and
curled into the
want ads to see
if Cupid had a condo
available next month.

  1. Today is for last lines. I just finished reading "Never Climb in Pretty Shoes" on your blog, and yes... my teeth are still bare. And that growl turned into a delicious grin, when I read " if Cupid had a condo / available next month." Have I ever told you that my Piano Man and I met on online? On OkCupid, too. So, yes, those last lines made me happy. I bet she'll find a condo. And probably a pair of warm arms. Girls that make May bloom can do anything. :-D

  2. This is wonderful! I particularly like the middle section! Woohoo!

  3. Love this! Feels like a reminder of a great musical I only now recall. :)

  4. I love everything about this one Susie! From the title to the last line! I especially love the first two stanzas!

  5. Clever take, Susie and nicely penned . . . :)
