Scarlet Woman

Must I always play the devil in our dime store dramas?
The wicked vamp,
the wayward wench,
the wolf slavering and slobbering after innocence
through dark thickets
and yellow lit min-marts
long after decent people are asleep in bed?

Truly, I have no taste for tender hearts.

But, I do look damn good in scarlet.

Fiction in 55 for my G-Man!

Love scarlet as long as it leans toward crimson- ah, big sigh, as I pass the back of my hand across my brow...

Well, the bad guy is ALWAYS the funnest character to play!

I've had three separate smart remarks in here guaranteed to offend all kinds of people, so instead I'll just say this is really good, and I like it. (But I'd rather wear the red dress than carry a freakin harp around.)

Excellently done. I haven't worn scarlet since my rock days in the 70s :-)

Red is my favorite color. Stay scarlet, my friend.

You have to play those parts because you're the only one who fits in the costumes.

Excellent Mama- Love that first line, especially as a question. Then you build right up to the great ending. Thanks

Laurie Kolp said...

Love the tone of this, and the first line is divine!

Great 55!

I so relate to this. I have stifled that part of me for many years now and she is growling inside me.

Your work just keeps getting better and better. :)
