Mr. Giggles

The old man is bent like a pretzel.
He has this perpetual Joker smile
a buzz haircut,
and is dressed in identical sweats every day.
His head snaps from left to right
Constantly – he giggles without stopping.
Even in his sleep he giggles.

dVerse Poets Pub – Quadrille

Monday De Jackson (whimsy gizmo) is prompting us for the Quadrille – a poem of exactly 44 words (not including the title) and using the prompted word.  She has chosen for us the word “cue”.  Apologies to De but everytime I hear the word “cue” I think of bar-b-cue – hot, tender, vinegary pork ‘cue.  Love that stuff – pulled, chopped, minced.  Love me some NC style ‘cue.  Come visit us at the bar Monday at 3:00 pm EST. http://dversepoets.com/2016/11/07/quadrille-20/

I Want ‘Cue!
Gimme some ‘cue!
Tender sweet porky ‘cue.
Smoked for hours over
Apple, hickory, oak woods
Until falling off the bone tender
Sauced with a vinegarypeppery sauce –
On a bun or on a plate –
sides of hushpuppies and slaw
Gimme some NC ‘cue – now!
