MAGPIE...Prompt #137



                            IT MUST BE TIME FOR LUNCH NOW/ 1979/ Francesca Woodman


THANKS to Tess at Magpie Tales


NOT YET

Like a faux magus,
I've bent spoons for you
with my mind.
Look at me,
starved, waiting.

When called to be present
I ring with pangs of remorse.

Despair bumps and grinds me
to my knees each day,
trickles of crimson
sully the dust.

The villain of the piece,
I'm bleeding,
now wearing
your favorite color,
Scarlet A.

Not yet entitled
to meet eye to eye.

wow...always the apprentice to the master...no matter how much you try to placate...

Heaven said...

Nice one...I like the 4th stanza, the color of Scarlet A ~

Lyn said...

Hi Laurie-
Thank you...that photo was really something...

Lyn said...

Hi Brian-
Yes, I really hate when that happens! Thanks so much..

Lyn said...

Hi Heaven-
Thank you, I enjoyed that image too! So glad to be in touch with Heaven...

Empowerment is so important. All people, especially women need to have enough of an ego to not have to bend spoons for anyone, ever. "Not Yet" is so much worse than that. Thank you for vilifying the injustice of feeling imprisoned in a relationship, Lyn. Despair and suicide are often the only way out, a tragic end. Scarlet A says it all. This is a brilliant piece.

Lyn said...

Hi Linda-
It's a good thing we have long memories..a good thing for a writer who lives in the here and now...thank you!

Helen said...

One of your finest, Lyn!!

I have no idea what this is about, but I will definitely enjoy reading it many times to try and find out.

Love it. Graceful.

Lyn said...

Hi dori-
It's about bending over backwards, maybe, but not really sure myself...thank you!

Harvee Lau said...

Very nice take on the prompt!

Lyn said...

Hi Harvee-
Welcome, and thank you!

Kutamun said...

This felt really cryptic, Lyn, like wandering around a crypt, perhaps with a Minotaur somewhere around. But the owner has style, and there are some bright colors adorning the place, thanks , mate.

Lyn said...

Hi Kutamun-
It's cryptic for me too..can't always figure myself out...thanks for the insight, mate!
