How I Once Spent A Friday Afternoon - Poem by M.J. Lemon

And this one
then that one
try another one
not just yet
one more...and one more
and finally, at last
I muster the expression
that you demand, that you command

Hello black, goodbye red
This one goes back.

    M. J., this poem reminds me of Margaret and I at The Bay testing colognes. She was driving me and the sales clerk totally bananas. She and I are no longer an item, but I still use variations of that same cologne. Go figure! (Report)Reply

    Richard, thank you so much. I hope I awoke great memories. And yes, we were at The Bay the afternoon that inspired this poem. Thanks again.

    Although I'm flustered at this word buster
    it sounds like you know how to spend a Friday,

    life's a box of chocolate, you get black and red.

    Oh, this made laugh! I take it from your comments below then that this was something you watched, and not performed yourself? (Report)Reply

    Mj Lemon(3/8/2016 4:47:00 PM)

    I only watched. And yes, I too laughed (to myself) .

    This is an interesting poem, one I would come back to again and again trying to dip into the head of the poet. I feel the mind is racing in this one, that one...I like it because it tugs at me..... (Report)Reply

    Thank you so much! I am happy your thoughts were racing...what I tried to do was compress hours of activity into just a few seconds...

    Too funny! But no, this wasn't me trying on shirts. This was from an actual date some years ago. I was the bystander...and the afternoon went on, and on and on...for about three hours.
