I warned you the guy was a botanist, didn't I?
Ah, I can always count on you for a giggle and a grin! Thanks, MZ!!Sylvia
Mama Zen,Interesting progression. The stamens, pollen and everything else are gone. Only the stigma is left (the pun is intended,right?)Hank
so next time you need to wear at least one more piece of clothes to make this work...smiles
Awesome job here MZ. Love this, everything from the Title to the graphic to the play on he loves me not. Awesome work
right on: you're use of flowers is literal and I love it. The thing I like most, it the whole he loves me/ he loves me not is soooo Jane Austen/ Victorian. I like the juxtaposition of that with the feverish undressing (very unJane Austen). viva la
Loved reading the comments to this one! You rose to the occasion on this one!
You're speaking my language. And how like petals those defensive and attractive garments are. Sharp and perfect metaphor.
This is really something! I have not even read what the challenge was about, and it doesn't matter because your poem stands on its own merits. Why am I suddenly remembering playing "strip poker" (age 15) in the backseat of a car, in spite of the fact that the boy did not have a deck of cards with him?!
God you're good ... you took the trope and made a noose out of it. And that last line -- perfect. - Brendan
Too bad you weren't wearing one sock. :) Clever words
Brilliantly clever - though I'm surprised that "he loves me not"follows "my panties"!
I have only one response to this poem: a hugely hearty round of applause!Such an idea that the rest of us may only admire and envy.
Hotter than a two-dollar pistil.
You clever lady! Wonderful, cheeky read!
Damn Mama Z .... this is awesome :) *grinning from ear to ear*Nicely done :)
so very creative
So you "did" Coal Black. I bet she was easy to open up, coming from you. Great job, BTW ...
Ouch, this stung. Very good, MZ.
Creatively done...it stings ~ Great interview ~
well done! It was good for me:-)
