“kept its fizz”

Written for:  The Twiglets #172 – “kept its fizz”

The problem with monogamy
is keeping the fizz.

Champagne lost
its bubbly fizz.
The relationship
was over.

strange birdsong from tree
sound is unique to this bird
fzz, fzz, fzz

A red-headed girl from Kalamazoo
was proficient in playing kazoo.
Her boyfriend said, teach me
we’ll play ‘neath the beech tree.
No note could he blow due to past coke he used.

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.
