DigUpHerBone's piece (words were massage oil, obnoxious make-up and veggie in a steakhouse)

veggie in a steakhouse
sit ready to pounce
on makeup laden
cow

and obnoxious makeup
sip from coffee cup
leave cream and lipstick
mix on her tongue

and waiter
wait for payer
to feel full,
rub hair
wish gel was
massage oil

but makeup never
consent
to feel sickly
fulfillment

and waiter always late
for his date
on saint dollar sign
day.





Bassbeat77's piece (words were bow and arrow, taxi ride and sizzling)


Love In A Calendar

She picked me up at 7,
our reservation for quarter past.
I had offered to drive,
but she insisted that she did
because she knew how I could get
after only a couple of drinks
and she'd hate to end the night
with a taxi ride.

We arrived on time
and were shown to our seats,
no surprise the place was packed,
it being February 14th.
We both got the usual,
me a half-rack of hickory ribs,
her a "sizzling stir-fry"
or something along those lines.

Nobody is afraid to spend a little extra cash on this day,
I thought, as I noticed some people
staying for dessert and others
draining a bottle of champagne.
Everyone with a smile
and wearing scars shaped like hearts
left by bow and arrow.
So we did the same
doing our best to fit in, her and I,
trying to compete with love at first sight.

Once our evening was over
she drove me back home.
I got out and walked to the other side
as she rolled down her window.
I leaned in and gave her
a peck on the cheek,
"Same time next year?"
We both knew the answer,
because I'm only allowed to love her
on Valentines Day.



jmterluk's piece (words were teddy bear, ecstasy and silly amateur poetry)


Tonight is gunna be fine
It's gunna be the night
When we all get high
This feeling in the air
no one should be scared
CAuse it will all work out

Life right now is like an ecstacy high
When I'm with you, my love can't be denied
I wanna hold you tight like a teddy bear
In my life love is oh so rare

I can picture you right now in your chair
Waitin' for me to be on your door step
I can only think that you rather be
Nowhere then where we will be tonight

If you read this
You probably will laugh
You'll confront me
Say this was sweet
But its just silly amateur poetry

Life right now is like an ecstacy high
When I'm with you, my love can't be denied
I wanna hold you tight like a teddy bear
In my life love is oh so rare
