Beautiful Disaster

He called them

as he saw them

Straight shooting man

that he always had been
But damned if he

didn’t knock this one

straight out of the field
She’s pretending to be

all so sweet and innocent

pretending that she 

doesn’t know

what she’s doing

and that she’s

 powerful enough

to make grown men

bawl and squall

and carry on
She flirts with disaster

dances with the devil

winks at the stranger

 and cheats the curse

of ordinary

every single  day
She sweet talks


pulling out all the stops

while drinking

 sweet wine

sweet tea

hard lemonade
He calls her “Mi Lady”

she calls him

when she needs him

to help make sure

she doesn’t create


beautiful disaster
