For Poets United Verse First poetry prompt: Appetite
From Internet Images
Some said she was provocative, taking chances,
using her body to express whatever she was feeling;
a dancer with flamboyant appetites.
Liked living high and, when she couldn’t,
expected her friends to help her do that;
some said she was provocative, taking chances.
Wore gossamer costumes, showing bare legs
as she scampered over stage,
using her body to express whatever she was feeling.
Gift from an admirer, she loved hand-painted scarf floating
around her on night breeze from open roadster;
she was a dancer with flamboyant appetites.
Elizabeth Crawford 7/3/13
Notes: This piece (slightly reworked) was written a few months ago to show others what the cascade form looks and sounds like. It immediately came to mind when reading the prompt at Verse First today.
