Listening to Mrs. Hunnecuts’ Latest Wild Gossip

Meet me where that fresh wind tilts forward
listening to Mrs. Hunnecuts’ latest wild gossip.
It’ll be about love breaking a common man and woman’s heart.
She’ll swipe her hands briskly on her apron
as her clothesline snaps, flapping up and down.
Real authenticity exists in this haymarket town,
and there’s no doubt that pain needs no cable or blue tooth or FB to exist.

  1. And such authenticity of character and place and time – the flap of the sheets and wiping her hands on her apron bring back some memories – and the smell of wooden clothes pegs.. Somehow we have made the world smaller even though we venture further than our backyards perhaps we have less human exchanges?

    • True dat. Ain’t gonna see me leaning over a 6 story balcony, nor holding my baby up like that late young singer, Michael Jackson. Now there’s someone to gossip about, though likely someone will say that he’s about gossiped out or let the best rest in peace.


Have some fun...
