napowrimo #15: carrying a tune

Here was the challenge:

In a nice private place, pick out a stanza, or a few lines, that you like from a poem that you don’t otherwise feel was very successful. Say them over to yourself.

Now hum them. See if you can find the tune.

And now sing them aloud. (Who cares if you can sing? You’re in private. And this is poetry!)

Throwing away the rest of the poem, write two more stanzas (stand-alone or connected) that go to the same tune.

So here goes…

Green eyes,
Red hair,
Black dress,
I’m shy,
You’re not,
Confess…

Low-cut,
Sweat-stain,
High heels,
Back seam,
Tramp stamp,
Missing…

Bed-head,
Not you,
One curl,
Out of place,
Lip gloss,
Nice shade.
