Elena Sandu

Empty pockets empty purse

Inside my pockets
the wind..
tries hard to play
an old game,
hide and seek
But then too bored,
not pleased enough
starts searching for
a playmate for the friend!
who does he find?
Just take a guess? ?
My purse, thats right!
The wind tries hard to
hook him up
and Mr Purse?
Too lazy and too weak..
promises to play
actually starts but
then, just hide away and
Sweet dreams, you clever
empty Mr Purse,
Sweet dreams! !

    I'm the melding of The Man With No Name (Clint Eastwood) with Johnny Cash - (The Man With No Cash) . But I'm not proud enough, as you aren't either, not to merely joke about it. (Report) Reply

    I like the imagery and the ambience of the poem.Empty pocket is a close relation of empty
    purse or, better still, one in an unholy wedlock.Do read read these my poems: 'Money' and 'Treasure'.Keep writing. (Report) Reply

    Sweet dreams not only empty your purse
    For them you sacrifice the whole universe.
