Mardis Gras of Life

Every Thursday, The Rattling Bones creates a word list and posts it under “words to write by.” The challenge: use at least 5 of the 10 words. Free verse for this week. :D

How can you walk so somberly

in your canary yellow gladiator sandals

You should dance triumphal

Not disengage yourself from

the Mardis Gras of life 

Why not ramble  with me

Such actions do not preclude nor inure

the outcome

Dance with me in your

canary yellow gladiator sandals

I’ll wear my day-glo orange stiletto-heeled

party shoes
