Sunday Wordle #131: tentacles, balance, brick, notices, mouth, trash, gravel, everything, vacant, amalgam, cheat, fence, nothing

Villain

His gravelly throat spews trash words
from a mouth full of teeth like
broken fences.  A cheat.  Nothing
he says can be believed.  With vacant,
unbalanced eyes, he is an amalgam
of everything evil depicted on nailed
up notices, as the villain in Superhero
comics.  Hard-headed as a brick,
tentacles extended toward innocent
lasses, he is always thwarted
by their last-minute rescue.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
