"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2016 poems, paintings, new art & photography--a diary, a discipline, a delight. Read over my shoulder as I post my unedited poetry ---you can see it in the raw.

The last best pretend


The last best pretend

Under the buzzing street light
     I was the Princess Bride.   
You were Indigo Montoya.
     Two guys were there,
Were they princes, giants, heroes?
     I don’t remember.  . .
They were sword fighting,
     I was demure,
you were brilliant.
     It was the last best pretend,
and it was the best one of all.
