“Putting You Through Now, Caller.” (1)
.
“Thirkell confided she’d bargained, hobbled away,
Fingers crushing that suitcase,
Something taut in her eyes.”
.
“Guess she’s on the plane,
An age-encrusted face glimmering in a window.”
.
Putting You Through Now, Caller.” (3)
.
“Beth has a stark-mad warp –
Might-a-gored him anyway.
Kitten heels and blighting scrutiny.
Airless confidants once.”
.
“Retrace that freeloading…you at the wheel –
Pearls hustling on Cadillac seats.”
