Tanka : boots

2+

give me all your best
no lies, don’t be a-messin’
something you call love
keep playing, we’ll be burning
these boots were made for falling

tanka by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Mandibelle16 challenged us to create something using Nancy Sinatra’s These Boots Were Made For Walking.  I loved that song as a teenager — still love it.  The whole tough chick story is cool.  But I am also a romantic  so this is the sequel because she found “a brand new box of matches.” Continue reading Tanka : boots

Senryu : Miss Manners, another cracked tale

But when a so-called gentleman slides next to you and proceeds to put his hands around my neck, I don’t wait to find out if he is after my diamond choker or my virtue.
