21st century pin up girl

she carries
a pocket
full of love letters,
unsent, pistol
in fist in case
there's opportunity
for delivery

&

strokes her cat
in satisfaction,
only she can bring.

What can you say in 160 characters? Say and go tell Monkey Man.

A hot 160 you wrote there -- right up my alley....
A black cat crossing your path signifies that the animal is going somewhere.

Who Is Afraid of Alfred Hitchcock? said...

Hi! Brian...
I like the fact, that she carries a pocket full of love letters.
I also like the fact, that she strokes her cats, but that pistol in fist is curious.

What a nice use of 160 words.
Thanks, for sharing!
DeeDee ;-D

Who Is Afraid of Alfred Hitchcock? said...

Oops! I meant to say...cat!

She Writes said...

I love the "satisfaction only she can bring." How true are those words of animals and their owners.

Harnett-Hargrove said...

Her mask sounds heavy. Belying a set up that I would not want to catch off guard. -J

Nicola said...

Hi there, thank you for your nice comment on my blog :0) I've just finished reading your recollection of September 11. How scary that must have been, I bet there are so many stories like yours. Glad that you landed safely. You have a very interesting blog and it's so nice to 'meet' another blogger, take care.

BeMistified said...

Just brilliant. Glad I found your blog. Now I must go to get caught up.

adeeyoyo said...

Haha, Brian, are you sure you meant 'cat' and not 'gat'?

Goofball said...

I can hear the cat purring...I'm sure the cat is more satisfied than she is

secret agent woman said...

Is it just me, or does that sound lewd?

AmyLK said...

Yikes! Don't want to be the one she upset with! lol Great 160

Confident woman there! Blessings.

I guess that I am kind of a dullard. I missed the essence of this one until I read some of the comments posted here.

Candie Bracci said...

Love letters yeah but without the cat please

Gaston Studio said...

A flash of the woman's liberation; good one.

Many layers of meaning to this brief verse... Very liberating read.

I'm feeling some of her pain through an experience my daughter is having to deal with now...time to get my girl a cat?

Nice, Brian. The times they are a changin'!

I like the humor and simplicity of this one. Very nice.

Marla said...

I always knew those crazy cat ladies were dangerous.

Syd said...

Whoa, I would like to hear her story, without a gun though.

Nessa said...

Nice way to use the euphemisms.

JamieDedes said...

Rather a triple-threat woman ... sensual, sorrowful, and possibly treacherous. Complex and contradictory.
