NaPoWriMo Day 21 ~ New York School *Language Disclaimer*

Today’s prompt at NaPoWriMo is to write a New York School type poem based upon the “recipe” found here. Keep in mind that the recipe sets the guidelines for what goes into the poem…bad words, innuendo, and all. Not that I do not think and talk like this anyway, but it’s great to be able to blame it on someone else for a change.

Bang Your Bongos

Hey do you remember that weekend in Asheville
The one that set tongues to wagging
When we walked over to Pritchard Park for the drum circle
And after a while even you had to admit that the rhythm was contagious
What about the Jerusalem Garden with the belly dancer
When I asked you why you weren’t looking you said
That you were afraid of getting your eyes scratched out by me
How I giggled at that because I took you there on purpose
So that we could enjoy some music and belly dancing along with our kibbeh kabobs
Before heading back to enjoy our bits and heading off into dreamland or was that reality
In the morning Pandora started up all on its own
Playing Adele singing “Make You Feel My Love”
That was a cool kinda weird when that happened
You took the cue nicely though
It was out of this world, like thunder with no lightening
We fucked like it was a matter of life and death
Oh how I loved you in that moment
The smile on my face would have put the Mona Lisa to shame
Who needs crack when you’re around?
Let me tell you, not everyone gets omelettes like that
There was no fairy tale ending though was there
Oh well just like Bonnie Raitt said
I can’t make you love me if you don’t and
You can’t make your heart feel something it won’t
We’ll always have the drum circle
