Canoodling

He always packed a punch
in English leather – neat as an overnight
lightweight – stratagems of subterfuge
tucked side by side in thigh-tight spaces
an opaque diary of opportunity
contingency plans woven in white linen
whip thin stripes on sharp pressed shirts
razor and cufflinks – uninitialled – annonymous
cologne of-course, a kind of midnight poison
stoppered for nostalgia when the canoodling stops

Some perfume names to play poetry with in Lilian’s Brand Name Noodling

  1. Oh this is such a good job of (ca)noodling with brands! 🙂 Most especially love these two lines:
    “whip thin stripes on sharp pressed shirts
    razor and cufflinks – uninitialled – annonymous”
    and for some reason those whip thin stripes are a detail I find fascinating.
    Well done! So glad you posted to the prompt!
