Mademoiselle Writes Essays


Mademoiselle writes essays
of French Baudelaire conceived in a dream of stone
Her delicate appendages gracing the keys of her
Remington Rand.

Earnestly assessing the attributes of mans truth
Weighed against the dimensions of a higher morality
She perceives as yet to be

Why is it that some trust in words Mademoiselle
As others defile them
Are words merely puppets in a one act play

Pawns to be prodded and danced with
Escaping from the tongue

But not your words Mademoiselle
Least your words spark ignobility
Then abandon the pen!

Mademoiselle writes essays
inspired by French Baudelaire and Sunday visits with tea
Striking at her Remington Rand
Truth her dictation
Passion her sword

A writer of wit and treat
So berry complimentary
Don’t live with disregard or malcontent Dear Mademoiselle

If words are fiction erase the prose
Perish the thought
Spoiled and prim

Yay, I have faith in your delivery Mademoiselle
For a group of sound readers
Never ceasing to amaze
Wordsmiths beckon you to begin.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
