Ridin’ Low Under a Starry, Starry Sky

Ridin’ low under a starry, starry sky 
Where a yellow crescent moon hangs low 
Vincent, Dali, and Frida out for an evening drive
With no particular place to go.

While Frida smokes wearin’ red cowboy boots, 
The boy-men discuss all aspects of life
Dali says ‘I’ve lived before, a reincarnation of my older brother, 
and sometimes I dream Hitler is a woman and ravishes me.’
Vincent says, ‘ That’s nothing, my old friend- 
Would you cut off an ear to make a valid point 
To that pompous bastard Gauguin?’ 

Whereupon, Frida spoke in a loud raspy voice
‘No, but if Diego whores around one more damn time
He will leave me with no other reasonable choice-
I’ll cut off his limp dick and feed it to my dogs
And let my darling monkeys play with his balls.’

No one spoke the rest of the trip.

  1. And the moral of that story is … Don’t Cross Frida! Great foray into the life and times of the driver and passenger, and most likely spoke well for the way Frida felt about Diego!

  2. Welcome to Linda’s salty side; love it. I happen to love that image you chose, and a dialogue poem was a clever way to proceed; nice work.

  3. Don’t know how I missed this earlier, L3, but I’m glad I found it now. Hell, the artwork alone is marvelous, but the tale you attach…WOWIE-ZOWIE!!!

    Wonderful work, Sister.

  4. Well you have returned with a BANG! This is fabulous! The zinger at the end is just that….a real in-your-face zinger and I LOVE that it’s delivered by Frida! Just a GREAT post!

      • I am not sure how this slipped past me, but I am so embarrassed to admit that I did not know you had breast cancer. Shame on me! I am sorry this has been laid on your plate, but I wish you the strength you need to overcome Linda. My former business partner Larry’s wife Jan is a breast cancer survivor, 17 years now.. When I was still able, I would do a breast cancer walk with the two of them every year. May you enjoy many more years of writing! 🙂

  6. Have you seen this picture “https://i.pinimg.com/originals/15/59/12/155912d852c51b18ef6eaa349759fa58.jpg” Force by Forcewest? I love this kind of juxtaposition and your poem is a brilliant example. Love it so much and the characters you chose for their interaction. Amazing fun!
