Jane’s Poetry Prompt with week is a cascade – here – with this piccy and some words

Jane D silence

‘It’s a cascade’ said the fawn.

‘Are you sure?’ said the model,

Fixing her tresses.

*

‘It sounds like the rippling

Of a thousand naked torsos.’

‘It’s a bloody cascade,’ said the fawn.

*

‘If I’m deaf, I shall die!’

‘That’s right, abandon me. I know the answer.’

‘Are you sure?’ said the model.

*

‘Yes, eagle brain. Your ears are full

Of that awful hairspray you use when

Fixing your tresses.’

    Hey! You can keep your cascades to yourself! Have you seen Sydney after last weekend? Colloroy Beach has been washed away and a backyard pool fell into the sea. Cascades aren’t a good thing around here at the moment.
    Your poem brought a laugh.

    Great fun! I like your subtle alterations to the end lines especially in the second stanza 🙂
