I apologize to both my faithful readers. Wordle 20 from The Sunday Whirl, http://sundaywhirl.wordpress.com/, took off in a strange direction, over which, I had no control. The words were: rack, quivering, birdlike, studded, pallid, women, hordes, blooms, crawl, bar, hitch, goof.
in their pallid, quivering, starving hordes,
mere racks of bones, crawl from bar to bar,
following some birdlike migratory instinct.
They preen and display their tattoos,
studded ears, pierced lips and nose;
all in hope that love will bloom
from some casual hookup.
Maybe some goof will want
a permanent hitch.
with all their foibles,
preen and strut
in hope of one-night-stands
of uncomplicated sex.
No long-range goal enters their heads.
Women, in their pallid, quivering, starving hordes,
mere racks of bones, crawl from bar to bar.
