Legs

Last week, I asked Facebook friends for nouns and verbs, thinking it would be a great interactive way to spark some short poetry. I was not disappointed. Today, I'm using the verb "elongate," posted by Priscilla H. (thanks, P!). Again, like "shower," I could've gone gutter-side, but I'm keeping things quasi-clean. Read on for the short poem.


Stilted by stilettos, she strutted, 
Knowing her strong, shapely stems,
Further elongated by the tight, tiny mini,
Would magnetize every businessman at the bar
With each step, she caught a new glance,
And found the night full of possibilities
