Failed flirtation

I met you over coffee
as I fell from neutrality
I’m partial now;
to you with cardamom
to thighs, your curvatures
and the not so subtle way
you frown at me.

I will not squander
it’s time to act
to polish up my resume
and bend for you; propose.

Seraphic angel — you
please come and tickle me
and lift your petticoat.

What did you just call me?
Pervert?
I’m a poet! Bitch!

Flirtation by Miklos Barabas

Linked to Mindlovemisery’s Wordle. Hope it sounds more humorous than creepy.

  1. Well done and great job, even if it’s been some time, but you’ve played the words well – the piece sounds off gently, softly, but with some anticipation and excitement building – so the ending? LOL – quite the surprise! And I adored the lines:
    I’m partial now;
    to you with cardamom
    to thighs, your curvatures

    brilliant use of a taste!

    really well played – I like the subtly of the hints that it’s really not reciprocated – the frown, etc. Truly, well crafted Björn!

    thanks for playing this week’s wordle 🙂

  2. Oh, to go where the prompt doth lead…
    Head over heels…or rather in this case – not so much 😉
    I wonder if the era of the painting, the gent would have used a different term of endearment… Though ‘You Tease’ doesn’t quite have the same ring. 😉

  3. You made me chuckle with this one, Bjorn! The language and the image are so out of sync, especially:
    ‘please come and tickle me
    and lift your petticoat’
    and
    ‘Pervert?
    I’m a poet! Bitch!’

I try to reciprocate all comments. If you want me to visit a particular post, please direct me directly to that post.
