she came bearing gifts ∙∙Ꭷ••ᏌᏕᎵᏕ••Ꭷ∙∙

∙Ꭷ∙

∙Ꭷ∙

she appeared like a vision from Hell

in her trashy uniform with her collagen lips

i started to turn away…..

∙Ꭷ∙

 i blinked and…..

∙Ꭷ∙

there she was

…my dream angel…

with those long legs

and flowing dark hair

gently swaying her hips as she walked

∙Ꭷ∙

∙Ꭷ∙

∙Ꭷ∙

she reached me and said in a sultry voice

“postage due.”

“Pretty Woman”     young Roy Orbison

lyrics ~

Pretty woman, walkin’ down the street
Pretty woman the kind I like to meet
Pretty woman
I don’t believe you, you’re not the truth
No one could look as good as you
Mercy

Pretty woman won’t you pardon me
Pretty woman I couldn’t help but see
Pretty woman that you look lovely as can be
Are you lonely just like me?

Pretty woman stop awhile
Pretty woman talk awhile
Pretty woman give your smile to me
Pretty woman
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Pretty woman look my way
Pretty woman say you’ll stay with me
‘Cause I need you,
I’ll treat you right

Come with me baby, be mine tonight
Pretty woman don’t walk on by
Pretty woman don’t make me cry
Pretty woman don’t walk away, hey

Okay
If that’s the way it must be
Okay
I guess I’ll go on home, it’s late
There’ll be tomorrow night, but wait
What do I see?
Is she walkin’ back to me?
Yeah
She’s walkin’ back to me
Oh, oh, pretty woman

  1. Aw, Sista Poet, how cool is this?! I love it! I took one look at that first picture and thought two things…”Hey, she wrote about a mail lady!”, and “Look at that chick, what a trashbasket!” LOL. But when I read the rest, and saw the second picture, I love love loved it! Postage due all right. May I come in? ;-)

    And both version of the song, one of my lifelong favorites, were fun. :-)

    I think G Man may be okay with sharing the spotlight. I was *assigned* Fridays, G Man, it isn’t my fault! :-)

    • he better be okay with my Sista Poet!!! i’m tickled that you like it! ♥ {and no more of the “h” word for awhile!!!} Love ya!

  2. Love it! Saw the first photo and started laughing cuz I thought of FB’s trashy evil twin! What a great salute to the USPS!

  3. oo la la….might take me a while to find my change though…think she would mind sticking around? smiles….

  4. This is a cool response, given the special friendship you share with Ms Fireblossom. It made me smile :)

  5. Shay…(You have ‘secret’ G-Man Dispensation)
    Dani…I loved you writing this so androgynously!
    It was HOT!
    Loved your 55
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  6. A very fun take. Ever better when I could put the first thumps of Pretty Woman to the rhythm of your words.

  7. Oh such fun! I LOVE Fireblossom’s challenges. Wonderful poem and thanks for the Pretty Woman!!!! Love that song!

    • thank you, Sherry! ♥ Fireblossom’s challenges are almost as good as her poetry, aren’t they? i appreciate your visit and kind comment.

  8. hedgewitch

    This is tons of fun, dani–loved it, and who deserves more of an ode than the hard-working mail lady? Great classic song, too.

  9. Postage due! Oh, that’s no fair. Better yell at whoever sent it to you.

    • {smile} my mail carrier actually came to my door to collect 13 cents ~ and i live in a complex with over 500 apartments! thank you for your visit and comment, Alice! ♥

  10. Haaa….postage due! Damn it, there’s always a catch, in a dream she would change into a rabid dog just before unbuttoning her blouse. There is just no justice I tell you…..great write I loved it.

  11. A nifty little presentation – a poem and videos. A fun creation!

  12. This is so cool! I love it!

  13. Dani, nice to see you here! And a way cool poem.

  14. Crazy and cool…I like it.
