Hollywood Swimming Pool
(90 – 100 Words + Random Prompt: Your first prompt is to write a poem set entirely underwater
From my perspective,
headless socialites don’t need to learn how to swim,
they are buoyed up by their falsies,
and the greatest social trauma seems to be the lack of a Brazilian.
For those who have gone off the deep end,
there is a ghost from a 70’s party wearing shiny polyester
doing that dance move with the pointy finger – up and down.
He never knew what happened to him.
Deep down I find ditched wedding rings, multi-colored teaser condoms,
and a lone martini glass rolling across the bottom.
Everyone remains pretty shallow
the deep end is not for sissies.
