at the first baptist,
johnny put a ring on stephie’s finger just as clean and sure as
tightenin’ a lugnut down to the garage where he work.
johnny say she his little bird,
but the salon girls wonder out loud
do he think
that ring gonna hold her?
nail tech laugh and say,
she still gonna have plenty of dumb dead mice
danglin from her talons–
but it’s johnny
cos his little bird
sure enough still love to fly.
for one shoot sunday, prompt 3
