Lament for Miss Adelaide

Lament for Miss Adelaide

On this
Starry set guys and ghosts
Block out subterranean crap-games,
Her psychosomatic blues sing out
Ol’ blue eyes.

But he won’t cure her
With Bromo fizz … pearls and mink
Wraps and the final curtains of red
Lipstick clad dolls.

In the style of this week’s Poem of the week: two cinquains by Adelaide Crapsey

    • The original cinquains are very beautiful. I didn’t really try too hard with the syllable count in these though. I like trying different forms -it’s interesting to see how the form of the poem can change the mood.
