FIRST CLASS FRIPPERY (He’d Furthermore Murmur)
July 25, 2015
This man risked squandering 2 quarters,
Despite the nights rain,
He’d fight to stay the payphone,
Risked squandering 2 quarters,
Meant to be spent t’wards a quart when the night was down.
So he’d hang up/ quick as Go
So she’d ring back/
If she could be in curious mood.
It wasn’t too late
(But maybe that’d help)
He’d be ready, with his 1st draft.
Damn, ink already ran onto his icy hand,
Trailed off his folded page of all
Falderal, frippery, & doggerel.
Worthy words to win some time.
(He’d furthermore murmur….)
He’d force his forte’ over the phone.
If she called back
If any would entertain
A curious mood
