"it is all in a word" big tent poetry #3 wordle (inspired by Marvin Gaye)


glitch the pattern

doff and let’s get it on

sapient wisdom I capitulate to your fondle

it is futile

pick up the caparison off the floor

come on baby

let your love come out

the tincture is sultry in this room

neon signs light our way

proof as I crumple in a pattern underneath

traces of stars and purses hit the pavement

  1. Great wordle work, Pamela! "the tincture is salty in this room," speaks volumes. I read this about five times. You take me with you into the night. ~Brenda

  2. Not a fan of MG, but Sexual Healing sounds like just what the doctor ordered.

  3. Um, I'm too young to understand this one! :-)
    But you got 'em all in.

    How did you get the wordle to copy? I tried and tried and nothing happened.

  10. I like how you worked the words into the meaning of Gaye's song, and my favourite line is "the tincture is sultry in this room". Indeed. Nicely done.
